My husband and I are planning to be in France November 10-17 and were originally planning on spending half our time in Paris (not our first time to the city, but love it so want to spend some time there) and half in Provence. I have come to realize that the Beaujolais festival will occur while we are in France and I am thinking of staying in Lyon for a night or two (perhaps longer) to experience the festivities. I am sure it is remarkable but I wanted to get some advice from people who have experienced the festival themselves. You see I am torn because I have always wanted to go to Provence (I know Nov is not ideal but only time we could get away) but I wonder if I should forgo seeing it one more time as this may be a more memorable experience, or perhaps fit in all three in a week? We are interested in relaxation, food and just "taking it all in" during this trip, no set agenda. Your advice is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
