Hello, my wife and I intend driving from Nice at the end of January for 3 days and then on to Paris. Could I get some help in making my decisions: (apologies for the copious questions)
Is winter the fine to visit Annecy?
Are the roads safe - will soft tyres do on the rental car or do I need chains?
Do I understand correctly that the best route from Nice would be by via Geneva?
Do I need to book accommodation in advance my stay to get a 'reasonable' price?
To travel to Paris from Annecy do I need to head towards Lyon?
If the questions are too many, I am happy to do the research if I am pointed in the right direction.
Thanks in advance - Pratul

Would like to share our itinerary & look forward to suggestions:
Day 1: Arrive in Paris in the morning. Suggestions for a 3 hr. itinerary (we're be flying 13 hrs!)
Day 2: Eiffel tower( to climb up or not? Have heard horror stories of lines 3-4 hours waiting:( ); Place du Trocadero & Notre Dame
Day 3: Montmartre (shall I budget a half day trip? )
Day 4: Palace de Versailles
Day 5: Arc de Triomphe: Jardin de acclimation(or any other park barring Disneyland, with plenty of action for the children)
Day 6: The Louvre & Jardin de Tuileries
Day 7: Fly out to Switzerland in the morning
