Final Itinerary...any thoughts/suggestions?

Jump to last reply

Our family's August itinerary is finally set...I think. Travelling will be me, hubby and 2 daughters, ages 14 and 23. Trip begins August 15, upon arrival in Paris.

3 nights: Paris..7th arr
2 nights: Bayeux
1 night : Mont St Michel(on island)
3 nights Loire Valley
4 nights: Chamonix

We plan to fly home via Geneva to minimize backtracking. We thought this itinerary would be a nice mix of city, countryside, and "active" opportunities. Although we enjoy sightseeing, we don't like this exclusively, as most of our vacations are active/adventurous.. We usually need a vacation to recover from our vacation!

All hotels, except Chamonix, are booked and confirmed, since we are considering adding an extra day.(we're avid hikers) We will have a rental car when we leave Paris.

Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks

P.S. Has anyone taken the Aiguille du Midi Cable car to the summit? How scary is this?
