Another must-see inclusion, is Nîmes, an outpost of the Roman Empire. 

Head south, and spend a week in Mandelieu, situated in the glorious Côte d’Azur (French Riviera).

You will have the option to take in even more history with an excursion to the Palace of Versailles or a day trip to Vimy Ridge. When in Paris, one must indulge in croissants and lattes, as you people watch on the cobble stoned streets of Paris and enjoy a picnic on the banks of the Seine.  On your final night, you will feast on Parisian food and take in the thousands of years of fascinating culture in the country of France.
