Just like everyone looking for input about a trip I taking on Aug 25.
I will be staying with a friend in Grasse for a couple of weeks. She will have some free time but most of the time I will be solo. I then have a friend arriving for a month. Here are my first world problems :) My aim is to enjoy the area and not been in a mad dash rush as I do have time.
For the first two weeks I was thinking about doing some day trips from Grasse to the surrounding areas by train or bus. For that I was thinking of 5 or 6 days for the day trips. I could then drive to Montpelier for a few days and do the surrounding areas. Or I could just have a car and take a few short trips and still use Grasse as my base? What do you think would be the best use of time :)
Then when my friend comes we could do more extensive trips as we would have a car. We could even go into northern Italy for a few days.
Any suggestions for places and amount of time in the area would be greatly appreciated and the best method of transport as well. I do have a rental car booked for all the scenarios :) I have Rick's book and will be using that as a guide too.
