Looking for advice on first trip to France in mid October

Jump to last reply

We're a middle-aged couple planning a trip to France in mid-October for two weeks. We know we can't cover a lot in that time but would like to get a feel for the City and country.

We plan on flying into Paris and leaving from a southern destination, and we're from Canada.

Our current plan is to visit Paris for several days 4-5, maybe more and then we are thinking of moving south (via train probably) , we are thinking Lyon, but not sure.

In Paris we plan on seeing some of the main attractions (museums, Eiffel tower, cathedrals, etc). We are also planning a day trip to Palace of Versailles, and possibly Giverny Gardens.

The southern leg we are not too sure of and could use some assistance. From what I have read in the forums and various sites, Lyon seems like a good place to be home base for the second week. Plan on enjoying the city and food. We are initially planning a day trip to Avignon, but could use some recommendations here. We'd like to see some villages and/or vineyards if that makes sense this time of year.

We are flexible on where we fly out of. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.
