I'm doing a 10 day trip after spending a week in Paris. This will be in mid June. I'm interested in visiting Annecy, Chamonix and the French Riviera. I read a lot of recommendations for visiting the Provence, but I'm not sure if I have time to stop there.
This is the plan I have in mind:
Day 1 (afternoon): Paris to Annecy.
Day 2: Annecy.
Day 3: Annecy to Chamonix.
Day 4 (Sunday): Mont blank.
Day 5: Chamonix to French Riviera. Stay in a base and do day trips.
Day 6: Nice.
Day 7: Cannes.
Day 8: Cours Saleya, Villefranche Sur-Mer
Day 9: St Paul de Vence, Antibes
Day 10: Eze, maybe Monaco?
Day 11 (6 am): flight from Nice airport.
Is that doable? Or it's too much in a short time?
What transportation method would you recommend? The train from Chamonix to Nice is quite a pain. Should I fly from Geneva instead? Or should I hire a car from Paris and drive all the way instead? It is about Eur 500. Not sure how much I'll end up paying for gas, tolls and parking. Any city I should add or remove?
