suggestions for Belgium and France itinerary

Jump to last reply

My DH just found out he will have a business trip to Brussels in June. We would like to make a vacation of it. (He only has business one day.) I was thinking to spend a few days in Belgium, several days in Paris and also see one other area of France. Probably would take a couple weeks total, but that's flexible as we don't yet have plane reservations.

We are middle-aged but in good shape and can walk long distances. We are especially interested in good food and wine, scenery, culture and historic sites We have minimal interest in art museums and shopping. Neither of us has been to Belgium before. I have never been to France - he was in Paris many years ago.

I know it's late to start to plan now, but we had no choice. That's why I need your help. What things should we not miss in Brussels and Paris? Given our interests, what other area of France would you suggest we visit? Any other advice? Thanks.
