My husband and I will be traveling to France and Germany in 2018 and will be first-timers to Europe (but have traveled to Africa previously). We do want to visit Paris and hit maybe a couple of "big sites," but we are most happy in small villages and towns that we can just wander and walk through. We had thought of the Dordogne....
So many other recommendations I've seen in the forum for 6-7 day trips say, "Just stay in Paris the whole time!" We are not fans of big cities in general and aren't sure this advice is best for us. We aren't sure when we'll be in France again, as we have many countries we'd like to visit.
What would you say? Are we wrong to think we wouldn't want to spend all our time in Paris?
Thanks in advance!
