Help with itinerary

Traveling to Paris in mid June to spend a few days. Looking to travel at most about 6 hours by train to another destination. At that time spend a few days in the second city touring and then travel home. I have been to Germany several times so that country is not one I would be interested in going to. I am traveling with 2 others who have never been to Europe. Help! Looking for suggestions.....

Do you want to stay in France or do you prefer to visit another country? Getting to the Cote D'Azur would be an option, e.g., Nice is under 6 hours by train.

Barcelona is also a possibility, it is 6.5 hours by train. Lausanne by train is under 4 hours from Paris. And Torino in Italy is also 6 hours on the high speed train. It depends on what you are looking to do, your preferences.

The Dordogne area is beautiful.

I suggest the Loire Valley. It isn't far from Paris but there is a lot to see there.

Cote D'Azur or French Riviera as it is commonly called is one of the best possibilities if you want to stay in France itself. About 5-6 hrs from Paris by train, the area offers everything - beaches, scenery, architecture, good food, luxury (if you like that on a vacation:)) etc. You could stay in Nice and make day trips to Cannes, Monaco and St. Tropez. For the two in your group who are Europe first-timers, Paris combined with the French Riviera would make a great trip.

We're headed from Paris to Strasbourg and then spending a few days in the Alsace region exploring the Route de Vins.

On our last trip to Paris, we also visited Annecy as a contrast to the big city. We loved it. Just a few hours by TGV and it was an easy flight home from Geneva. Enjoy your trip!

Annecy is beautiful, we stayed there about 2 years ago...but travelled from Geneva, which is only an hour trip by car...I'd love to go back soon:)
