There's a lot to do in Paris itself of course, including walking tours, lots of food activities & wine tastings, and behind-the-scenes museum tours.

But it's also great to get into France Profonde, the French countryside, to get a deeper feeling for the country, and visit magical places like the Loire Valley and Mont Saint-Michel, or delve into history at WWI and WWII battlefields and beaches.
