May I suggest September. We have been several times to Europe in September and the weather is really nice then. Still warm, although London might get a tad chilly at times, and not the rainy season.

Not many exciting monuments and stuff. Many people come to see Lyon as a day trip from Paris, which is completely doable but I am not sure if it is worth it. But if you plan to spend a few days here, I recommend go east and visit the charming town of Annecy, and then unique ski town of Chamonix, where you can take the cable car to 4000meters and see the massive snow mountains so close to your eyes, including the famous Mount Blanc. Chamonix is about 2.5 hours drive from Lyon and you would probably need a rental car.

If you have two weeks or more, I am sure you can do all the above (even if you spend 3 days in London). I always thought a trip with a mixture of grand large cities, quaint small towns and the pure nature is the best option. After a few days you will be sick of those palaces and cathedrals, no matter how exquisite they are
Alsace is beautiful, wow!😍 I really don't want to hop all over the place so I don't think I'm going to do other countries. I'll focus on France because I want time to enjoy it! I really want to divide my time between Alsace and Paris without feeling rushed! I don't think I will be able to go longer than two weeks.
