We are spending the 1st 2 weeks of our honeymoon end of March travelling from Paris to Rome. All we are booking in advance is 3 nights in Paris then we hire a car and plan to make our way south to the French Riviera (stopping along the way) and along the coast into Italy. We'd love to get past Rome to the Amalfi Coast and Sorento then back up for at least 2 nights in Rome.
Trouble is we have only 10 nights between when we leave Paris and fly out of Rome. My fiance has spent the last 2 weeks agonising over guide books and maps trying to work out the "must sees" and the best route to go. We are desperate for any advice from someone who may have done a similar trip (even in reverse). We just are not sure on how long to allow for getting from 'a' to 'b' and how long to allow for seeing the sights once there. We are hoping to see a mix of the big tourist attractions and the 'real' countryside and towns.
Thank you so much for any help you can offer us!
