European route suggestions
I;ve got 6 days at the beginning fo April next year. I;m looking at a max of about 250 miles. My friend and I were thinking of North France and Belgium (specifically the Somme and Flanders - a tour of the WW1 battlefeilds), but I;m a bit concerned that the weather could be against us - In the UK, were I;m from April can be a bit brutal, and I suspect Flanders will be much the same. It;s convenient in that we can catch ferries to Calais, but we;ve been thinking that flying might be better, and as such, we;re looking for suggestions. Only Europe, though.
We kind of like history, so would like somewhere with a bit of a historical resonance. I was wondering about the Romantic Road in Bavaria, but again am uncertain about the weather. I don;t mind cold so much, but not wind and or rain.
I was wondering about Spain or Italy.
Anyone got any good routes that fit the above?
