Itinerary Paris/Provence - please provide thoughts

Jump to last reply

We will be taking our girls to France for 10 days this summer. I'd love your ideas on our draft itinerary!

This is flexible; we sometimes change plans on the go, especially when the girls are with us, or trade one day's plan out for another.

In Paris, we are staying in a hotel next to Luxembourg Gardens so will wander through and enjoy them at some point.

Day 1, Sunday - Arrive Paris.
Check in at hotel. Lunch.
Hop on/hop off yellow bus tour
Can't read my husband's notes on what we're doing next. :) But then, I assume, dinner and bed.

Day 2, Monday
Louvre early.
Ile de la Cite; Berthillon for ice cream
River cruise
Eiffel Tower picnic

Day 3, Tuesday
RER to Versailles

Day 4, Wednesday
Musee D'Orsay
Notre Dame
Ile St. Louis

Day 5, Thursday
Husband and kids do the Catacombs; I go to l'Orangerie
Walking tour of Montmartre or the Marais

Day 6, Friday
TGV to Avignon; pick up rental car; drive to Roussillon; dinner and walk about town

Day 7, Saturday
One kid and I will go truffle hunting while my husband and other kid are going to investigate Roussillon further (since I'll have the car).

Day 7, Sunday
Market at Isle sur la Sorgue - seems to be my main opportunity to pick up souvenirs for friends; my husband is not a big shopper
Possibly stay all day and have dinner there per a friend's recomm. Or perhaps go to Pont du Gard and then return for dinner.

Monday
Visit hill towns on the way to Cereste for ice cream at Scaramouche.

Tuesday
Back to Paris

Wed
fly home

Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you!
