Traveling with friends--a few logistical questions (France)

Jump to last reply

I'm a frequent traveler, particularly to France. Now several (7 of us) of my old friends (I mean OLD, as in, we were schoolmates) would like to France this summer. Summer is a time I've never gone, due to the increased costs and crowds, but two friends are teachers, so...

They want to go to the Riviera, which I've not done, so that's great. Our tentative plans are:
A week in Nice area with cars, driving around that area, Monaco, etc.

Arriving in Paris two days prior to taking possession of the house. We have 4 days after leaving the house before flying home to the States.

No one is really interested in Paris (except me, I love it). They really want to see Mont St. Michel which, logistically, is a pain, but here's how it's looking:

Day 1
Arrive CDG
Fly to Venice on Easyjet (really cheap)
Day 1 balance in Venice
Day 2 Venice
Day 3
fly Easyjet to Nice, pick up car
Day 4 - 9
Nice and area
Day 9
Fly to CDG, train to Pontorson, bus to Mt. St. Michel
Day and overnight on the Mont
Day 10
Train back to Paris.
Days 11, 12
2 nights in Paris (one full day)
Day 13
Fly home

The reason for Venice is the really cheap flight CDG to Marco Polo, then Marco Polo to Nice ($75).

My real problem is putting Mont St. Michel into the mix, but it's important to several.

Is there a better way to do this trip?

Thanks!
