May husband and I (early 30s) will be traveling to France the last week in August and first week of September to end at a wedding in Vallery (outside of Paris). We do not plan on renting a car as it seems like traffic is really bad that time of year. We are interested in getting a feel for the region. We love to just walk around and explore. I have come up with the below itinerary, but am not sure if I'm being too ambitious. We are pretty active and used to walking as we live in Manhattan, but I also do not want to be overly rushed and not be able to enjoy these beauiful places.
Any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help in advance!
Day 1:) Tues - arrive Nice in am (base for Day 1-Day 5). Spend day recovering and explore Nice.
Day 3:) Thurs - Vence morning and Villafranche afternoon/evening
