Ideas for a weekend in France

Jump to last reply

I'll be spending the last 2 weeks of March in Lyon on business. I should have the middle Saturday and Sunday free to do some sightseeing. I'm looking for some ideas of what to do given my starting location, time of the year and 2 day duration.

A couple options I thought of are taking a train and spending the night in Paris to see the obligatory sights. Another might be to rent a car, drive through some villages and observe the landscape of the French countryside. I think it would be really cool see the Alps although I would be a little concerned about the condition of the roads since it's only just the start of spring.

I've never been outside of the US/Canada so everything will be new over there. Also, I only speak English and don't know if that would be an issue in certain areas. I've seen that touring vineyards and wine tasting are popular activities but that wouldn't be for me as I'll be drinking water.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
