Planning our bucket list trip to Paris, Belgium and the Netherlands.

Jump to last reply

We have 3 to 4 weeks to play on our trip from mid to late September til early October. this fall. We would like to spend at least two weeks in Paris (maybe 2 1/2) with a day trip somewhere, 1 week in London (with a day trip or two) and the rest divided between Belgium and Amsterdam.

We have read several tour books, this forum postings and surfed the net for tourism info.

We are foodies who love art, museums, cathedrals and exploring local attractions. We love all cuisines (adventurous eaters) and taking photos. We will be relying on public transportation.

For a day trip from Paris, we are thinking Dijon. Any other suggestions to check out?

In Belgium, we are torn between Brussels or Bruges. Both? Which is more picturesque? Best chocolate and beer:)

Is it worth a train ride on to Amsterdam for a couple of days? Any other suggestions?

This will be our first and quite likely only trip to these regions. Are we overlooking anything?

Are point to point train trips usually reasonable and the way to go? Do we need to buy tickets ahead or can you just show up and buy one the day of the trip other than the Eurostar?

Any suggestions will be very appreciated.
Thank you for your help.
