First time Europe traveler planning an Italy trip and the wife wants to include Paris.
I was wondering if 2 days driving time is enough for this distance (~500 mi) with limited stops.
I just ordered Ricks France book but it looks like Beaune is a good stopover (I think I saw this one on Ricks show).
Also, we don't really need to stay in Milan (not much of a shopper) since our actual first Italy destination is lake Como so I would substitute Chamonix for Milan if we can get lodging.
Is 2 days driving reasonable (with limited stops) for this route and is Beaune and Chamonix the obvious stopovers?
I'm an avid hiker and I would never forgive myself if I don't get at least a short hike in the alps.
