A few questions to help me plan for Normandy

Jump to last reply

Hi all! DH and I have chosen to spend our 25th wedding anniversary in France. We will spend 4 nights in Normandy, followed by 6 in Paris. I've never been to Normandy and have lots of questions. I've ordered the new Michelin Green Guide to Normandy, which won't arrive until next month. I've done some research here, and continue to read the relevant threads. Not unlike many people here, we know we want to see much of the D-Day landmarks and museums, the Bayeux tapestry and Le MSM. A few questons:

1. We love history. Is 2 days of a guided tour of D-Day landmarks too much? Would 1 day guided and 1 day self guided be better?

2. What tour company/guide do you recommend?

3. Should we spend our entire 4 nights in Bayeux or split our time between Bayeux and elsewhere?

4. Can you recommend a romantic accommodation? (I have no idea what that really means!)

5. Can you recommend good restaurants?

6. We arrive at CDG on a Tuesday early afternoon (late October) and plan to head to Normandy, probably by train, right away. Our actual anniversary is Thursday, and we will return to Paris that Saturday. Would you suggest a 4 day itinerary? We are not adverse to renting a car in Normandy, and driving back to Paris, but feel we'll be too jetlagged to drive right after our flight from LAX.

I really appreciate your input.
