Paris & Normandy but we don't speak French at all?

Jump to last reply

We are thinking of going to Paris & Normandy - preference would be Paris for 4 days and the Normandy / Mont St. Michel / Rouen area for 3 days.

Neither one of us speak French. I have traveled in England and Spain extensively and I lived in Spain for 6 months, so I have a sense of adventure, but I am nervous at the prospect of not knowing the language at all.

How difficult is it to navigate the country without knowing the language? I would try to learn some before we went.

Is it difficult to drive a car without knowing the language (ie road signs)? We would most likely take a train to Rouen and then rent a car for a few days in the Normandy region, then take a train back to Paris and fly out.
