Hey, I am planning a trip to France in March and was hoping for some good tips. I will be starting in Charmonix and eventually making my way to Cannes. Can anyone make some good recommendations for stops along the way? We will be trying to do this on the cheap, but I want to make sure we get the full foodie experience. I was thinking Lyon, Valence, Avignon, and Aix-en-Provence. Any suggestions? Are there any small towns along the way that are good stops/replacements for what I have in mind? Worth a stop in Menton?
Also - is it worth ducking into Italy on the way back to Geneva? Torino?
