We needed to use a British Airways voucher and had to get tickets much earlier than expected, so I'm just starting to plan for a trip in April. We had this in mind so I've got an overview but would love to get the experienced advice from so many on this forum!
Background: my husband and I are frequent travelers and have been to Paris several times although our last trip was brief, and I love Paris! We've also seen several areas in France but not these sights outside of Paris.
4/10-Arrive in the evening, sleep in Paris
4/11-Sightsee and sleep in Paris
4/12-early TGV to Amboise, rent a car, see Chambord and Cheverny, sleep in a chateau in the area or maybe Amboise
4/13-Chenonceau early then Clos-Luc in Amboise, sleep in same as last night
4/14-return car and take a train to Chartres, sleep in Chartres
4/15-train to Paris, sleep in Paris
4/16-sleep in Paris
4/17-daytrip to Giverny, sleep in Paris
4/18-midday flight home
-Should we skip the night in Chartres and stay one more night in Amboise area?
-Is 4/12 too busy?
-Should I move a chateau from 4/12 to the afternoon of 4/13?
-Is Giverny not worth it in mid-April?
Thank you for any help!
