We just booked our flights for September 21 - October 3 round trip to Paris. We have some basic ideas for our itinerary but would love some help firming it up so that I can start booking hotel reservations. This is the basic outline of where we were thinking of going.
Rent a car at the airport and drive to...
Amboise- 3 nights
Mt. St. Michel
Bayeux- 3 nights
Rouen to drop of car and take train to Paris
Paris- 3 nights
That leaves us with 2 nights to play with. Is is worth a night each in MSM and Honfleur? We typically like to spend at least 2 nights at a location. Would it make more sense to spend 2 night near MSM and stop in Honfleur on our way to Rouen. Also, by taking the train from Rouen to Paris, we are missing the opportunity to see Giverney. Is this something that we should reconsider? I am not sure if the gardens in late September would be too late in the season. I know that adding time to Paris is probably another option but my husband had to be talked into the 3 nights we are staying there (he only wanted 2!). Any suggestions, recommendations or tips would be much appreciated.
