Crammed France itinerary. What to cut? Thank you!

Jump to last reply

Hi there - I am visiting France with my 10 year old twins. I am worried that I am trying to do too much. What would you suggest deleting/adding to make it manageable?

Arrive from California (=jetlagged)
10 days Paris

4 days by rental car
Paris to Rouen - Honfleur - St Malo - Dinan

1 day long drive Dinan area to Bordeaux

3 days Dordogne

1 day drive Rocamadour to Montpellier

3 days Montpellier

Ditch rental car. Train Montpellier to Barcelona.

4 days Barcelona

Flight BCN-CDG for return flight to US

Hard to cut Montpellier much because I will be visiting friends there one day. Also cannot cut Paris time because that lodging is paid for. Should I cut Dordogne all together? Or Barcelona?

My reason for adding Barcelona is to show my kids how close together European countries are. This is unique coming from the US and after travelling in China regularly. I wanted them to at least get a feel for train travel, crossing the boarder, language change, etc. Also Barcelona is wonderful. My sons are very into architecture and I thought they'd love it.

Flights are so expensive from CA I want to make the most of the trip. But I don't want to make everyone miserable. I go back and forth between a full itinerary like this and a week here, a week there, beaches/cafes/wine/slow.

Thanks for any tips. Overwhelmed trying to make everyone happy.
