There is a free weekend in Lyon, after the week at Paul Bocuse.  Lyon is the third largest city in France.  There are markets, cafes, historical sights, river cruises, etc.  French language skills are not required to enjoy many of the attractions in Lyon.
 
Monday of the second week is spent touring the Georges DeBoeufs vineyards and winery in the Beaujolais Region, which is about a one hour bus ride from Lyon (included as part of course.)
