I believe that if you have a Schengen visa, you will have free movement among any of the 25 countries, so it shouldn’t matter?

Btw- You don’t need Schengen if you have US passport.

If you’re spending a majority of your time in France on the trip, this shouldn’t be a problem. Like C1 said, it might raise questions the next time you apply, if you got your visa from the French consulate but won’t be going to France or will be spending a majority of your time in Italy/Switzerland.

You are supposed to have the visa for the country you are spending most of your time in. Passport control officers will often ask what you’re doing where, where you’re staying and for proof of your accommodations.

Can confirm. Recently did a trip in Europe with my SO and she got a visa from Spain because that’s where we’d spend the most time, even though it was the last country in our trip.

Got visa from Switzerland embassy and landed in Germany. No problem.

No they did not ask me any questions about the trip. But just in case they do, print out your itineraries, hotel reservations, etc...

You can use Schengen visa to enter any Schengen country. It might be frowned upon next time you request a renewal though, because you are supposed to request it from country of entry. But my relatives did it anyway and still got it next time.

C1 - Depends on how long you will be there. If more than 90 days out of the next 6 months, a visa is required

I don't have us passport
