We plan to spend 16 days in France in early September and would like to visit the following places:
We will arrive in Paris on a Sunday and will spend 6 nights there. Plan to spend one day in Versailles. We have already found a suitable hotel in Paris and are all set.
we have been thinking of spending 2 day visiting Normandy and one day in St. Michel. Since we do not intend to drive, (a) what would be the best way to get to these places from Paris? (b) are 3 days enough for the visit? and (c) where would be the suitable home bases?
Our next stop is the Loir. (a) Would one day be sufficient to travel here and also have enough time to see places of interest? and (b) What would be the most suitable way to travel from St. Michel to the Loir?
Since we will not have enough time to see all the interesting areas in southern France, we have to optimize the remaining 6 days. (a) What would be the interesting places to visit in Dordogne, Provence, and French Riviera during this time period, and (b) the best way to get to travel to from the Loir Valley to this part of the country. we will be flying out of Nice. Thanks!
