Paris — 9 nights

A beautiful and romantic city fit for any itinerary, Paris brims with historic associations and remains vastly influential in the realms of culture, art, fashion, food and design.
Get in touch with nature at Île de la Cité and L'Orangerie. Venture out of the city with trips to Palace of Versailles (in Versailles), Arboretum de la Vallee-aux-Loups (in Chatenay-Malabry) and Rouen (Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Rouen & Roumare Forest). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Louvre Museum, wander the streets of Montmartre, contemplate the long history of Eiffel Tower, and take in nature's colorful creations at Luxembourg Gardens.

To see traveler tips, more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Paris online trip itinerary maker.

Lyon — 9 nights

Lyon is a historical city with a vibrant cultural scene as the birthplace of cinema, the silk capital of the globe, and the second biggest Renaissance city following Venice.

There's much more to do: trek along Les Pertes de le Valserine, get outside with Go & Sea, take in the dramatic natural features at La Roche de Solutre, and admire the striking features of Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere.
