12 Day Trip to Benelux/France

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone. I am currently planning a trip to Belgium, Amsterdam and France at the end of March/beginning of April. My wife will be in Antwerp umpiring a field hockey tournament and I plan to fly over at the end of the tournament so that we can spend twelve days traveling. I fly in to Antwerp and out of Paris.

My first stab at an itinerary looked like this: one night in Antwerp (since that's where I will meet up with my wife), rail to Amsterdam for three days/two nights, rail to Brussels for two days/two nights, and finally rail to Paris for the remainder. Neither of us have been to any of these cities before. I was also considering trying to spend one night in either Burgundy or the Rhone Valley after we arrive in Paris, hopefully at a hotel located at a vineyard, as I do love me some vino.

As I consider it further, it does seem like a fairly intense (and perhaps detrimental) itinerary. Does this seem doable if we travel between locations on the high speed rail network or should I maybe think about cutting out Brussels (which, of Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris, probably has the least appeal to me) and extend Amsterdam by a day and Paris by a couple? Does the idea of leaving Paris for just one night to head to either Burgundy or Rhone Valley make sense? I really would like to experience one of those wine regions, even if it is only for one day and night, and my view would be spending a night at a vineyard would make it worthwhile.

As far as what we like to do, as that may colour the responses, we do like museums, art galleries, etc., and my wife particularly will want to see the Louvre, etc. However, really we love to experience the culture when we travel, hang out in bistros, drink great wine and have great meals.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Cheers
Greg
