Good Day All,
I've relied on this forum in the past and input received here made a positive impact on my honeymoon. So I'm coming back to the well...
My wife (married almost 2 years now) are planning a trip with two friends from Sept 1st-Sept 11th. Here's the itinerary as it stands:
Sunday Sept 2nd - land and board train to Bruges - walk around and hit the hay early
Monday Sept. 3rd - Bruges all day - tour brewery, go up belltower etc.
Tuesday Sept 4th - Bruges in the morning (museum in city center) and leave midday for Normandy (Bayeux)
Wednesday Sept 5th - Band of brothers or other WWII tour like D-day beaches which will absorb most of the day
Thursday Sept 6th - See Tapestry and possibly WWII museum in Bayeux - and then?
Friday Sept 7th - ?
Here's where I need some help. We have Thursday and Friday to see Normandy sights. We want to see the tapestry and perhaps WWII museum in Bayeux, but also have Mont Saint-Michele on the agenda which appears to be a 1.5 hr drive from Bayeux. Originally we were going to get up early Thursday and head to Mont at 7:00AM by rented car, then return the rental car and hop a train to Paris. However, we just extended the trip by a day, so now I'm wondering if we should spend the night there. The hotels appear lackluster on the Mont and I'm not sure if there is a whole day's worth of sightseeing to be done. We could go to Saint Malo to stay the night Thursday and then take rental car to the Mont early Friday and then make our way by train from Saint Malo to Paris? We just need to be in Paris by Friday night so we'll have three full days there and then the morning of our departure.
Saturday Sept 8th - Paris
Sunday Sept 9th - Paris
Monday Sept 10th - Paris
Tuesday Sept 11th - Fly home
Any in the Normandy leg of this trip?
