My friend and I are planning a last minute, once in a lifetime trip.Tickets booked. Flying into Paris April 28th, flying out of Florence Italy May 8th.
We will be in Paris April 28th to May 2nd. Thinking of travelling to the Burgundy region for two nights (Dijon preferably Beaune) and after need to quickly make our way to Florence Italy May 4th to 5th.
We are so new to this (!) and had hoped train travel would keep our budget reasonable. We leave Florence May 8th to return to Canada so naturally we hope to get to Florence quickly.
Can anyone tell us if there is a train from maybe Lyon or Dijon to Florence? Perhaps thinking of a train to Geneva then Florence?
Or maybe we should just train it to Marseille and fly?
Or, maybe a suggestion other than Burgundy that could give us the France flavour of a vineyard visit and a castle and would help us get to Florence to make the best of our budget and our time?
Totally bewildered and running out of planning time. Would sincerely appreciate any advice...
