Hi forum friends!
Thank you for the hotel advice, I chose the Millesime Hotel in the 6th for our 11 nights in Paris.
Now I need a little help with how to spend our time before Paris. We’re flying in July 22nd and want to go to Normandy and Mont St. Michel. We arrive at around 11AM so I’ve put together two different scenarios and wanted some advice.
Day 1 – Land at CDG and scenario A or B below
Day 2 – Bayeux tapestry and town
Day 3 – All day D-Day beaches (I need to book a tour)
Day 4 – Drive to Mont St. Michel to arrive in the afternoon and stay the night
Day 5 - Drive to CDG and drop off car, cab to hotel – Stay in Paris
Day 6 – 15 – Paris
Assuming we arrive at CDG at or around 11AM and take a couple hours to clear immigration and pick up luggage, etc. should we:
A) Book a hotel at CDG and train into Paris to walk around for a few hours and have a meal. Then train back to CDG and get a good’s night sleep. Take a train to Bayeux or Caen in the morning or rent a car and drive to Bayeux (if we rent a car we can be more flexible on the way).
B) Arrive at CDG and train directly to Bayeux. Sleep there and explore town, rent car on day 4 to drive to MSM.
I don’t want to drive on arrival day, but I think I’d be OK with the train. I thought about a hotel in Paris for that first night but since we’re moving out the next day, I think it would be easier to stay at the airport to head early the next day.
Any thoughts, ideas, alternatives or suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
