I will be taking a trip to Europe in July. I am flying into Paris and flying out of Nice after a work event (the rest of my trip will be vacation). I have decided on the following itinerary so far:
7/2-7/4 - Paris - 2 nights
7/4-7/6 - Colmar - 2 nights
7/6-7/9 - Lucerne - 3 nights
7/9-7/11 - ITALY - Turin or Milan? - 2 nights
7/11-715 - Nice - 4 nights (two days work)
I took a trip to Italy three years ago and loved it so basically, I am just trying to get a small taste of Italy once again as I pass through on my way to Nice. I was thinking about Turin or Milan as they seem to be the easiest as I head to Nice. Mostly, I'd like to see some great sights and make the train travel to Nice as easy as possible. I open to any other suggestions. I love outdoor activities (hiking, biking, running, water activities, etc.). I am not that into museums but I do like castles. Thanks so much for any input!
