Reims to Fontainebleau Itinerary questions

Jump to last reply

Hi

As usual, I'm rethinking and fine tuning a part of our trip to France. This section will begin at the last week of September.

We will arrive in Reims at about 1pm, after flying from the US and hopping a train at CDG.

We have two nights to spend there.

I had originally planned to use the second (next) day to drive to Pierrefonds and back from Reims. I now think that would really be selling Reims short.

On the third day, I thought we would drive to Vaux le Vicomte, then to our B&B between there and Fontainebleau.

On the fourth day, Fontainebleau and the Foret.

Now, without Pierrefonds, I think we're missing something old/medieval, and Vaux le Vicomte and Fontainebleau on back to back days seem similar and maybe not a good idea.

Is there anything on the general route between Reims and Fontainebleau that would be medieval or ancient?

Should I reconsider the back to back visits to Vaux le Vicomte and Fontainebleau?

Would it be wise to extend Reims to 3 nights, using the third day to drive to Pierrefonds, then choosing between Vaux le Vicomte and Fontainebleau?

Any help or ideas will be appreciated.
