Hello Guys, I’ve been reading different topics for over a week now trying to get ideas for my future trip but as of now, I need to start making decisions already. I feel your advice specifically as to my trip would be more helpful than keep reading similar topics/questions. Therefore I (finally) created an account and here I go on my first post/question: Husband and I will be traveling into Paris for about 2 weeks next June (arriving on 6/16 and leaving on 6/29). A little background on us: we were in Paris for the tiniest tease (1.5 days) back at the beginning of May 2012 (very cold for me lol) before embarking on a cruise out of Barcelona. Since then, Paris has been the only thing in my mind. We are into the ambiance, food, architecture, scenery more than anything in Paris (not big museum persons but are planning on visiting D’Orsay and possible the Louvre). We are in our mid 30s and leave in a very sunny city in the US so are very used to warm weather. Here is my dilemma. We have 3 possible scenarios on how to use our time. Scenario #1, spend the first 6 days visiting a couple of other cities, possible in Italy, and the full 7 days remaining in Paris. Scenario #2, use Paris as our base for the entire time and spend 2 days in Amsterdam and maybe 1 or 2 in Bruges and maybe a couple of day trips outside Paris. Scenario #3, take a cruise from the 6/16 through 6/23 leaving from and arriving to Rome and the rest in Paris –this last scenario leaves me with the least time in Paris; therefore, it’s my least favorite. Very important fact: We have tickets purchased already flying in and out of Paris. Any suggestions and/or advise would be greatly appreciated!
