Would love input on France Itinerary: Paris, Avignon & Annecy with kids

Jump to last reply

Hello! I am traveling to France in April with my husband and two daughters, ages 11 and 15. We have been to Paris a few times already. We are looking forward to spending more time in Paris, but we would also like to see a bit more of France this time (without exhausting ourselves from moving around).

I have come up with the following itinerary and I'd love some thoughts/input as I keep second guessing (too many beautiful places).

Feel free to make other suggestions as well -- but I like the idea that Avignon gives us a slice of Provence and Annecy will give us a slice of the Alps. Enough variety to keep the kids interested, but not TOO much traveling from place to place and getting exhausted.

One specific question -- does 3 nights in Avignon and 2 in Annecy make the most sense? Torn about that one.

The other thing my husband questions is whether we should do the Nice area instead of Annecy? I just feel drawn to those mountains and the alpine flavor... Nice is a longer trip back to Paris too...

Here goes:

Friday: Paris (Flight gets in too late to take the train to Avignon)

Saturday: Train to avignon (Stay 3 nights)

Sunday: L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue or Uzes (we will rent a car)

Monday: Avignon (maybe visit a vineyard or visit a beach town?)

Tuesday Drive to Annecy (anywhere interesting to stop on the way?)

Wednesday: Day trip to Chamonix (Aguille du midi)

Thursday: Morning train to Paris

Friday: Day trip to Versailles

Saturday: Paris

Sunday: Paris

Monday: Fly Home

Thank you!!
