I'm having such a hard time making a decision & hoping you all can help. I'll be making my first visit to France in December with a few girlfriends. We will be traveling for a week total, and Paris is our main destination, however we'd really like to spend a few days elsewhere. Italy is possibly my favorite place on earth, specifically the town of Assisi, I swear 3/4 of my heart was left there - so I'm torn between finding "my" Assisi in France (quaint & charming - especially something that's beautiful to see during the Christmas season) verses checking out Amsterdam or Belgium while we have the chance.
We're all mid-30s, moms, escaping out kids/husbands if that helps ;) We like good food, wine, and just experiencing the culture in general.
Thanks in advance!
