Fixing The Itinerary

I feel like at this point I’ve got the basic skeleton o f the trip locked down apart from one point. I’m trying to decide if it’s worth it to include Lyon in the trip or if that time could be better spent in Provence or the Riviera.

Right now I’m leaning toward yes, it should be included, even if it is a brief stop (which it most likely will be). Originally I planned on us spending two nights in Lyon, but now I’m thinking one night will have to be enough. We can take the morning train from Paris spend the rest of the day and the night, and the take an afternoon train out the next day to Avignon.

This plan is still slightly in flux but here’s how I’ve got it breaking down so far:

7 days in Paris, 1 day in Lyon, 5 days in Provence, and 5 days in the Riviera.

And EasyJet offers very inexpensive flights from Nice to Paris, which means we don’t have to waist precious vacation time circling back to Paris at the end of the trip.

The itinerary has been updated.

P.S. I should make it clear that my hesitation in stopping in Lyon is not because I don’t think it will be a worthwhile stop, because I’m sure it will be, but because our time is limited and we would be going directly from big city (Paris) to big city (Lyon). If anybody has an opinion on this they’d like to share please feel free to leave a comment or email me directly.
