I've been lurking on this forum and enjoying all the great advice that everyone provides. I'm going to France with my wife next month and we have set aside 3 days for a driving trip around Normandy. I was hoping to receive any advice you may have about our proposed itinerary, and whether people have suggestions for changes:
Day 1: Pick up car near L'arc de triomphe around 9am. Drive to Giverny. Tour Giverny and eat lunch. Then leave for drive to B&B in Ver Sur Mer. Perhaps stop in Caen or Bayeux, or have dinner in one of those towns?
Day 2: Morning D-Day half-day tour (or does anyone know a full day tour that ends early enough to still arrive in MSM by 5pm?). Lunch and then drive to MSM, in order to arrive in time to walk around MSM in the late afternoon. Dinner nearby but not in MSM. Thoughts on where to eat dinner near MSM?
Day 3: Breakfast and short walk in MSM early. Spend day driving to Rouen to arrive no later than 545pm in Rouen (car rental agency where we are dropping car closes at 6pm). Potential stops in Bayeux and/or Honfleur, just to walk around. Is it too much to stop at both Bayeux and Honfleur? Also, any other suggested short stops along the route?
I would be very grateful for any advice. Merci d'avance!
