Hello everyone - this is my first post. My daughter's skate team will be competiting in the WOrld championships in Toulouse, France in April 2010. We are traveling with one other family and would like to extend the vacation both pre and post competition. Here are my thoughts thus far after weeks of research! -
Leave Chicago Fri 4/16 and arrive in Paris 4/17.
Spend 4/17 thru 4/21 in Paris
Leave 4/21 for Toulouse (rail I believe)
Spend 4/21 - thru 4/24 in Toulouse
Leave Touulous via one of the value airlines (easy jet?) for Italy? and spend 6 nights in Italy & fly home from there.
What I need help with is Italy - There is SO much to see and so much to do it's simply overwhelming. I can't even decide where to fly into/out of much less where to spend our time.
We will have 4 adults and 4 girls ranging in age from 10-15.
Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.
