7 Days in France - ideas and some suggestions for itinerary?

Hi guys and gals,

First timer doing Europe and was thinking of doing 7 days in the France and would like some ideas and suggestions of things to do for a basic itinerary?

Was looking at 3 days in Paris and then 4-5 days around the countryside and then hopping over to Italy for 7 days.

So if you have some great ideas and suggestions for things to do in France for 7 or 8 days that would be much appreciated.

Thanks

You need to give us more information - such as how are you travelling? What things do you enjoy doing? What kind of areas do you want to stay in (rural, urban, village etc etc)?

It would also help you (and us) if you searched on these boards for other posts on this subject - your questions will have been answered many times over. You will then be able to narrow down your options and ask more specific questions.

Could I politely suggest you read some guide books on France, Italy and the UK (as these are the countries you've asked TA members about) and once we've heard what interests you most then someone out there will answer your questions.

For instance, do visits to castles and stately homes in the UK switch you on? Are you interested in the wine production areas of France? How do renaissance art/architecture and roman remains grab you?

Happy to help further but a little more info would help especially whether you intend to hire a car or if you are working to a strict budget.

FWIW if you can only afford seven days for France I would suggest you spend it all in Paris and perhaps make a couple of day trips to nearby places outside the city. There is more than enough in Paris itself to keep you very thoroughly occupied for an entire week — or a month if you can spare it.

From Paris you could take a low cost flight to Venice, Pisa or Rome, among other places, depending on what your Italy plans look like.
