I have 5 days to kill in France - what to do?

Jump to last reply

I am headed to Europe at the end of March to walk the Camino Frances. I originally planned to just spend a couple of nights in Bordeaux before heading to St. Jean Pied de Porte, however this would mean I would start walking on Good Friday, and apparently the trail is pretty crowded during Easter week. So, I am contemplating delaying the start for a few days.

Constraints:
1) Flight is already booked, so I will be flying into Paris.
2) I need to be SJPDP, so it doesn't make a lot of sense to go to somewhere like Strasbourg, for example.

I was contemplating maybe Caen (Juno Beach is relatively close) and/or Mont St. Michel, but the trains seem to involve a lot of backtracking to get to Bordeaux afterwards.

Any suggestions?
