Provence, French Riveria, French & Italian Alps Itinerary

Jump to last reply

I am planning to travel to Nice, French Riveria and French and Italian alps with my husband and 15 year old daughter for 3 weeks in July. We like hiking, water, nature, small towns and villages and photography. We will rent a car in Nice and drop off in Nice. We would like to stay in B&B's along the way, any suggestions would be great.

This is my itinerary so far. My goal was to do a circle trip so that I would start in Nice and end up in Nice with no back tracking. Any advice on whether this is too much driving, especially in the alps. Any places not to miss along the way that I may have missed?
Day 1- Vancouver, BC to Nice
Day 2 - Nice
Day 3 - Nice-Antibes-Cassis
Day 4 - Cassis (hike calanques, Cap Canaille)
Day 5 - Cassis-Saint Remy (base here for 5 nights) to see the sights: Arles, Les Baux, Pont du Gard, Nimes, Avignon, Orange, Isle Sur la Sord, Lavender Route, Luberon Hill Towns any others - is this too much?
Day 10-Saint Remy - Annecy
Day 11 - Annecy - swimming, hiking
Day 12 - Annecy
Day 13 - Annecy-Chamonix
Day 14 - Chamonix - hiking, luge, gondola to lookout points
Day 15 - Chamonix -Varenna, Italy (Como Lake)
Day 16 - Varenna and area
Day 17 - Varenna - cooking class
Day 18 - Varenna-Milan
Day 19 - Milan (Fashion district, La Scala - ballet, Gothic church)
Day 20 - Milan-Eze-Nice (not sure if I should add Monte Carlo)
Day 21 - Nice-Vancouver
