Our cruise will end in Rome. We would like to spend a few days in Paris and then on to Bayeux. What is the best way to accomplish this?
Fly on a budget airline from Rome to Paris. Both easyJet and Vueling fly from FCO to ORY.
Take the train from Paris (Gare Saint-Lazare) to Bayeux. If you book well in advance (up to three months allowed) at tgv-europe.com, you can get a Prem's fare as low as €15.00. Discount fare tickets will be for a specific departure date and time and are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. Be sure you can commit before booking. On the website remove the check mark from the "direct trains only" box. To avoid being bumped to the Rail Europe site which doesn't offer discount fares. choose France as your ticket collection country. If you get Prem's fare tickets, you can print them yourself. If you buy a standard 2nd class ticket at the station, it will cost €39.30.
