We are retired Americans. We would qualify for a long term stay visa most likely France. We would like to travel to Spain, Italy and France. Am I understanding right, in that even with a long term visa issued in one of the above mentioned countries, we are still limited to travelling outside the "home visa country" to 90 days before having to return? I thought there was no more border control in the EU and free travel isn't a problem. is there a way legally we can be free to travel to the 3 countries mentioned for more than 90 days before we have to exit.
