Paris Versailles Vichy Lyon???

Jump to last reply

My daughter is studying abroad in Vichy, France next sememster. My other daughter and I will be visiting her in March. It is hard to tell from the map, but Vichy appears to be a little in the middle of nowhere (like our treasured homeland...Kansas?). We are flying into paris and out of Nice. Now i just need to figure out what to fit in the middle. We have been to Paris, but that was the best flight situation. I was considering going right from Paris to Versailles and doing Versailles for a day. I have done it, but the girls have not. Then from there head to Vichy. Halfway through the week, take a train to Nice via Lyon.

So here are my questions. Is heading straight to versailles a good choice? From the map it appears to be loosely on the way to vichy. How to do transportaion? I was planning on doing trains, which is how we have done the trips in the past, but wondering if the first leg...paris to versailles to vichy would be better done via car. Then drop the car when we head to Nice. What to do in Vichy? Obviously, part of the joy will be to see my daughter in her element. However she will be in classes that week and somewhat busy. Can we find the things to do in Vichy for a few days, or do we make that stay shorter, and head to Lyon for a few days or even on to Nice. She may be able to break away from classes, but we won't really know what her schecule is like until she gets there. So we really need to plan without her, in the hopes she can join us in Versailles and Nice.
