Paris Drive Recommendations

Jump to last reply

I'm going to be in Paris--arriving May 2 8AM, Departing May 10 Noon. I will be renting a car due to the fact that train tickets are insanely expensive. A car is under $200 total for the entire period, so if you are going to recommend a train, it would need to be comparably priced for two people. (I don't think I'd ever do a Europe train trip as I'm not willing to meet the crazy 3 month advance purchase requirements for reasonable fares--I just don't plan trips that far in advance--in fact I usually plan as I go.)

A one way trip is also not a possibility--we must begin and end at CDG )

If you were going to do some driving, where would you go? I'm thinking Brugge and Brussels. (I'd like to include Amsterdam, but I think that may be too far.) If you have any suggested itineraries, I'd love to hear them. I've been to all of these cities before, but my GF has not. I think Paris will need a 3 day minimum and I'll drive before or after that.
