My fiance and I are going to France and Belgium next Spring and am curious as to how we should divide our time? We land in Paris May 5th and fly out of Brussels May 14th, however, we plan on Ghent being our base for our time in Belgium.
We were thinking 5 days in Paris and 4 days in Ghent but I was curious as to what you guys think?
While in Paris I for sure want to take a day trip and tour the D-Day beaches and while in Ghent we want to day trip to Bruges.
So is four days in Paris and one in Normandy enough time? Is three days in Ghent and one in Bruges too much?
Instead of a 5/4 split would a 6/3 split be better? Any insight would be great!
