In July next year we are going on a Rick Steves 3-week best of Europe Tour. The tour ends in Paris. The tour itself only allows about a day and half in Paris - which I realize is no where near enough time. At the end of the tour we have allowed for an extra week on our own (my wife and I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary on this tour!). We are debating between just spending that extra week in Paris (with perhaps a day trip or two to Versailles or the Loire Valley), or do we travel south and spend a week in Provence, rent a car and see that region? Our return flight home departs from Paris - so we'd have to come back to Paris if we went south. We have never been to France before - so what should we do? We're thinking we want a very relaxed pace for that final week as we will have been on the go quite a bit on the 3-week tour. Any recommendations on how to spend that last week?
