We're a young couple visiting Europe for the first time in Oct 2013. We originally planned on staying in Barcelona for 3 nights, Paris 4 nights, Amsterdam 2 nights and London 5 nights. We recently decided that we would love to take in more of the French landscapes, so have opted to drive from Barcelona to Toulouse instead and stay the night there, leave the next evening by train to Paris where we will stay for 3 nights. Here are a couple of questions I have and would really really appreciate any tips/advise on this
Is it advisable to drive from Barcelona to Toulouse? And if yes, whats the best/ most scenic and safest route?
How long is the journey from Barca to Toulouse in terms of time?
Is it advisable to make this trip, given we will be in Toulouse only for 1 night?
Would it make sense to do a day trip the following morning to visit Millau Viaduct? or is that too far off..and will we be able to make it back in time to catch the train to Paris
If we do take the toll roads, how much should we budget for Toll charges?
Would really appreciate any advice you might have on this! Thanks a ton!
