France

Paris

Make sure to book enough days in Paris, there is plenty to do and plenty of places to see.  The Louvre it self, needs at least couple of days to visit in its entirety.  Also, there are some attractions that are outside of the city, which is not a problem since transportation by train is very efficient. However, plan accordingly. The Versailles Palace is one of those locations outside of the city and also have early closing hours, especially the Petit Trianon which closes earlier than than the rest of the complex.

The Sacre-Coeur is a great place to see the whole city and spend the afternoon watching the sunset. Great food and shopping in the area.

To visit the Catacombs it might be easier to find a local tour guide since they can get you in faster.  Usually you need to get tickets in advance and get there extremely early to get in line.  The tour guide can do that for you.

Provence

Provence is the on country side of France, with abundance of rolling hills, green valleys and plenty of vineyards to visit. 

Recommend to take a wine-tasting tour around town.  **Be aware that wine tasting in the United States and Europe does not have the same dynamics.
