My husband and I are looking into taking a once in a lifetime trip to London/Paris next September or October. We never travel in our country let alone outside of it so we decided that London was a more comfortable starting point. We are NOT interested in art or theater but do enjoy historical sights and good food (although not snails, duck or seafood). This is our anticipated itinerary. I will be purchasing advanced ticket and fast track passes to sites as available.
Day 1 Arrive early (0700) in London, Check-in/Drop-off Luggage, Hop on Hop off Bus Tours, London Eye, River Thames Cruise
Day 2 Burroughs Market, Harrods, Explore London
Day 3 Tower of London (3 Hours), Millennium Bridge (25 Minute Walk from Tower), Explore
Day 4 Windsor Castle Day Trip (5 Hours), Explore London
Day 5 British Museum
Day 6 Take the Eurostar Train to Paris, Check-in/Drop-off Luggage, Seine River Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Cruise
Day 7 Visit the Catacombs (2 Hours), Eiffel Tower (2 Hours), Explore Paris
Day 8 Day Trip to the Palace of Versailles
Day 9 Explore Paris
Day 10 Day Trip Tour to Mont St Michel
Day 11 Fly Home
We have also considered adding another day in Paris and making Day 10 and Day 11 a road trip to Mont St Michel and the surrounding area with an overnight stay in the area. Then we would fly home on Day 12.
I would love to get any advice on this itinerary. Also, how difficult would it be for two adults who don't speak French to navigate renting a car on the outskirts of Paris and doing a road trip to Mont St Michel with an overnight stay in the area? Thank you in advance for any assistance you can give.
