First Time in France--Paris and Burgundy

Jump to last reply

Hi! I am taking my first trip to France solo in October and am in the preliminary phases of planning. I am looking to spend five days in Paris and five days in Burgundy (Beaune most likely)—maybe at an Airbnb.

For Paris I would like to pick a charming neighborhood with lovely cafes, shops, and clubs and live like a local for five days—maybe take in a few museums and some music. I should mention I'm a bit of a foodie. I don’t want to try and cram too many things into one trip. I want to relax and enjoy.

In Burgundy I would like a bicycle, nature and wine. Something that is not too difficult to get to from the train station but that perhaps is also not directly in the city.

I would love recommendations for places to stay, things to do, and restaurants—things that are less touristy and more for locals in the know. I am also a little worried since I don’t speak the language. I will not be renting a car and moving between cities by train and cab.

Also any websites or places I can go to get info on traveling solo in France—the nuts and bolts kind of stuff—would be awesome.

Thanks in advance!
