We are currently exploring the ideas of flying in/out of Paris at the end of April. We will have about 10 days and will be traveling with our twins who will be 12 at the time of travel.
We plan to spend 2-3 days in Paris (we have been previously) - but we need ideas for the rest of the trip. We’ve not explored any areas of France outside of Paris, previously. Ideally, we would like destinations that are 4 hours or less by train.
My kids are good travelers and managed to see a fair amount of Europe when we lived in the UK for 6 months in 2016. They (and we do as well) enjoy historical experiences, nature/animals, new foods, hiking, and boating. They also enjoy art museums - although in a limited capacity - a few hours at a time and not the main emphasis of the trip.
We like cities, smaller towns, and countryside and are open to any and all possibilities. A mix would be great. We are also open to visiting destinations outside of France - I personally have an interest in Bruges (but don’t need to include that on this trip, unless it makes sense with the rest of the itinerary).
Thank you for your suggestions!
