Best route traveling from Lucerne to Paris by car?

Hi everyone,

We will be traveling from Lucerne to Paris by car and just wanted to know what the best route would be in terms of stopping at little villages. Not too remote either- but I would prefer remote to commercial touristy routes. Also if you could recommend where to stop and eat. We would be looking at traveling about 150-200km per day.

Thank you in advance

If you are renting a car in Lucerne (Switzerland) and returning it in another country (France), you will be paying an enormous fee for this one-way drop. Have you looked into this?

You can use www.viamichelin.com to get an idea of the driving time, distances, fuel and toll costs. To work out which places to stay you need to read the Green Michelin Guide(s)

Thank you so much for your Reply Dale. I do realise there are many extra costs involved. However I didn’t mention that we are returning to Geneva to drop off the car- it thanks for the heads up. So it’s only the toll costs I need to work out. But thank you for those Apps, I’ll definitely look into them 👍🏻

And don't forget to get an International Driving Permit before you leave home

Viamichelin links to the on-line Green Guide so you can request it to show you sites of interest on any route that you plot.

It also links to the on-line Michelin Red Guide, so will show you recommended restaurants and hotels in the same way.....
