Need ideas for 2-week Trip in Fall (Oct/Nov) 2012

Jump to last reply

We're planning a special trip to celebrate our 20th anniversary and would like to spend two weeks in Europe in the fall......problem is, we're having a hard time narrowing down the choices. Would like to spend a few days in a city and most of the time in the country or small towns. Have been to Paris numerous times, some time spent in the Loire Valley, Provence and near Lyon. Have been to Rome and Umbria together (I've been to Florence and the Tuscan Coast), and we've spent some time in Barcelona and in San Sebastian.

Here are the criteria: we'd like to go someplace we haven't been before, or to combine old with new (e.g. Barcelona with the Costa Brava and Perpignan area, or Florence and then Apulia). We like to stay in nice but affordable places, excellent food and wine is critical. Will detour for destination dining, but that's not going to be the main focus of our trip. We're interested in seeing some cultural sites like interesting museums or visiting the Normandy beaches and Bayeux tapestries, but would be just as happy poking around some smaller towns with interesting architecture or seeing cave paintings.

Would love to hear any and all ideas for places to focus on. We're hoping this won't be a once-in-a-lifetime trip so we don't feel compelled to cram in the "major must sees". Driving is probably how we'll do most of the place-to-place travel, except for in larger cities.

Thanks!!!
