Suggestions for a first trip to Europe from SFO

Jump to last reply

Hi,

We are a couple from San Francisco planning a 15-day 2010 summer trip to Europe.

Our main preference is non-stop flights. We have figured flying to Paris from SFO directly is the best option. We intend to spend 3 nights in Paris. We intend to take TGV to Marseilles or Nice, depending on suggestions here, and spend 3 nights there. We wanna rent a car and drive around the french riviera with the base in Nice or Marseilles. Is it the right way to see the riviera?

From Nice we intend to go to Venice and spend 3 nights there. What is the most convenient way to go from Nice to Venice? Flight? Train? Car?

We wanna decide how do we come back to SFO from Venice? Where do we spend the last leg of our trip considering we are looking for a non-stop flight to SFO?

Does this itinerary look good or can be further improved? We love wining and dining, the sun, water, and people watching.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
