Overview of France in 2 weeks but leaving in one week!!!! HELP!

Jump to last reply

I am going to France in next week for 11 full days (plus the days that I would be flying in and out of Paris). I want to get an overview of France with the intention of returning at a later date to the places I found interesting.

I would still like to spend at least 4 days in Paris. My mother has suggested Reims as an interesting place to visit since I recently turned 21 and could appreciate the Champagne. I traveling alone, and so am not interested in "college nightlife". I prefer to look at historical sites. I'm not a huge fan of museums, although I do plan to visit a few while in Paris.

I have looked at Mont St Michel and Reims as possible day trips from Paris. (I am trying to stay overnight in Paris most of the time since I can stay with a friend there.) Then I was thinking of going to the south of France and working my way north in a few days. I don't plan to spend more than one day in any city since I am there for such a short time. (I did this in Spain last year and had no problems.)

This was a sample itinerary I put together, but I was hoping someone might have suggestions as to how to improve it:

Wednesday: fly in to CDG
Thursday: Paris
Friday: Versailles
Saturday: Paris
Sunday: Paris
Monday: Mont St Michel
Tuesday: Paris
Wednesday: Arles
Thursday: Lyon
Friday: Colmar/Strasbourg
Saturday: Reims
Sunday: Paris
Monday: fly out of CDG
