Train or car rental?

Jump to last reply

Spouse and I will be traveling to France late Oct for week to visit my brother. We then will fly to Rome for Cruise back to Galveston. We have a question that more knowledgeable folks can help. We fly in to CDG Paris. My brother's farm is near Champosault and Vimoutiers, south of Lisieux. We will be carrying each a large suitcase plus a carryon a piece. Will this luggage be too much for older couple to go by train to Lisieux?My brother suggests train to Lisieux, rent car there, visit several cities Normandy including Dieppe,Omaha Beach, Caen,Bayeux, two nights in Paris and then on by air to Rome.Or should a trip by mostly train to above stops. a cab ride from Lisieux might be necessary as there isn't any public accomodation travel from there. Will auto rental for three or four days be exorbitant? Train prices are much lower for seniors, I understand.
appreciate any info.
Regards,
Fosterag
