Planning for Trip to Vimy and Ypres

Jump to last reply

I'm doing preliminary planning for a trip, and my main interest is to visit Vimy and Ypres.

I'll be flying in to Paris on a Tuesday and I will need to catch a plane in Amsterdam the following Tuesday.

So I was thinking of doing this. My limitation is that I will be travelling by train.

Is it worth getting a train pass, or would it be less expensive to just buy each leg?

Day 1: Arrive in Paris, take train to Arras, stay there overnight

Day 2: Taxi to Vimy ridge (since I won't have a car and this seems to be the only viable alternative), and spend the day there. Overnight in Arras again.

I wasn't sure if I should devote a day in Arras or not?

Day 3: Arras to Ypres. Spend day in Ypres. Stay night at Ypres

I wasn't sure if Lille would be a better place to stay overnight than Ypres?

Day 4: Finish touring Ypres. Train somewhere?

Day 5: ?

Day 6,7 Two days in Amsterdam. I guess I could add another day to Amsterdam to keep it simple.

Day 8 Flight out

Any suggestions or advice? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
