Yes, it's another France itinerary question. My husband and I are traveling to France this summer (late June) and I need some itinerary advice. I am trying to figure out how to fill four days of travel between leaving Annecy and arriving in Paris. On Day One, we check out of our hotel in Annecy. On Day Five, we have to take a train or drive from wherever we are and arrive in Paris by the afternoon. So, we have four full days of itinerary to fill. Specifics inside...
Here's what we know we'd like to do:
- Visit the Pont du Gard
- Outdoorsy activity on the Gorges du Verdon
- Wine activity involving Cotes du Rhone or Chateauneuf de Pape
- Scenic but not difficult bike riding
- Mindblowing food
Bonuses: Cheese caves (or some sort of excellent cheese tasting experience), Roman ruins, topless or nude beaches.
Given the above, are there any specific itineraries you would suggest? We like to keep it moving (the week leading up to this week will be quite leisurely) but don't want to move at a totally breakneck pace. We are open to driving, taking trains, or a combo of both. We would like to rent a car for a bit so we can do some country driving and exploring.
Thank you in advance!
