As your first trip is to Italy, you need to apply there and then as Rudy suggested ask for a multiple journey visa, covering the entire period. You can then safely return from Italy and then use the same visa to go to France for your holiday.

The train solution you found sounds reasonable to me. The connection between Strasbourg and Germany never were very good. There used to be slow international trains to Munich and further to Vienna and there are now some TGV but the high-speed rail network does not extend all the way to Strasbourg yet and the fastest trains to France run further north, from ...

Please take care not to use the motorway stations overnight and use either ...

Château d’Amboise Located east of Tours but not by much and spec has “roughly” Angers to Tours. The seat of kings of France and location of Leonardo da Vinci’s tomb (whether containing any of his remains is another matter!) in St Hubert’s Chapel, itself a charming little independent building. Has terraces 40 metres above the adjacent town and river, making ...

I support your original idea: Flying to Strasbourg SXB, taking a local train from the airport downtown (costs like €4, can be bought at the station, and takes like 20 minutes), visiting the Strasbourg city centre since it's really beautiful, and then taking a TER train from Strasbourg to Nancy (the ticket costs at most €25, less if you book in advance, it ...
