If we fly into Amsterdam and out of Remmes to come home is this too much in 8 days?
Not familiar with Remmes, where is it?
Sorry, I meant Rennes. It looks like it's an hour from Mont. St. Michel and even though our flight would connect in Paris I think it would be easier than driving to Paris and flying direct out of CDG.
Oh, Rennes, right.
Put your itinerary into the website below, and it will give you the travel times for your itinerary:
Then add to those travel times all the time you spend off the road or rail: you know, finding the hotel, finding parking (a lot of hotels in Europe don't have parking adjacent to the hotel), checking in, checking out, getting your baggage back to the car or train station, waiting for the train (if by train), etc.
And of course then add in your estimates of the time you think you'll spend seeing and doing the things you went to Europe to do (besides seeing the inside of your car or trains).
Then when you add up your total travel time + non-travel time + sightseeing time, you'll get an idea of how many destinations and what itinerary you really feel you have the time to do.
After you've done that, get back to us with what you think, and we'll give you any more comments we have.
It seems doable if you did 3 days Amsterdam, 2 days in bruges, and 3 days in normandy including MSM. Keep in mind that traveling and changing hotels will eat up a lot of time so you won't really have all of these days in each place to sightsee. I think it's rushed. I might just do 4 nights amsterdam, stop for 1 day in bruges on the way to normandy, and then do 3 nights Normandy.
PS you could do day trips to Bruges and ghent from Amsterdam, which would eliminate changing hotels and wasting time.
