Lyon or Aix-en-provence

Jump to last reply

Hoping to get some feedback from those who traveled to either Lyon, Aix-en-provence, or both.

Will be traveling through France next July (2012), and have a 4 night window in the middle of the trip between Paris (6 nts) and Nice (4nts). *Should point out, this is my first trip to Europe; traveling w/ my wife.

I know both Lyon and Aix-en-Provence are both deserving of 4-5 nights each; however since both are en route from Paris to Nice I was wondering if anyone would support an itenary that includes both cities? Currently, I am leaning towards all 4 nights in Lyon, as we both love energy of most medium-sized cities. I do want to see Provence (especially to see something other than just cities - Paris,Lyon,Nice), even if I have to wait for another trip to actually give the region the time it deserves of 4+ days.

What option would you recommend as a better complement to 6-nights in Paris & 4-nights in Nice:

A) 4 Nights Lyon
B) 3 Nights Lyon, 1 Night Aix-en-Provence
C) 2 Nights Lyon, 2 Nights Aix-en-Provence

Thanks everyone for the feedback!

*Also please let me know if anyone recommends a day trip to Chambery from Lyon.
