Europe Trip - Could use some pointers

Jump to last reply

I'll soon be going to London on Business for about two weeks towards the middle of March. Since, I've never been to London and since I've always wanted to do a Euro Trip I am planning on adding an extra week to do some personal traveling.

This is what I am thinking in terms of my schedule

Mar 16th - 17th - Travel from Canada to London

Mar 18th - Sunday - Look around the city a bit

Mar 19th to mid day 23rd - Work

Mid 23rd to 25th - Rome (already booked with a tour) Return to London on the night of the 25th.

26th to 30th - Work

31st to mid day 1st - Explore London

1st to mid day 3rd - Paris (Sunday night to Tuesday afternoon)

Night of 3rd - Travel to Normandy (still need to figure out how to work this, I heard there's a TVR train)

4th - D-Day beaches and Abbaye du Mont-Saint-Michel (might book a tour) (Wednesday)
either night of 4th or early 5th - Either go to Brussels or Amsterdam (still haven't decided where and how to get there)

6th or early morning 7th - Back to London to catch my plane to Canada at 10:30 AM on the 7th.

Now I know this pretty ambitious so if someone wants to set me straight more than happy to listen! I'd really appreciate it if people can give me some pointers:

1. Best way to get to Paris - Chunnel or BA Flight? BA flight is coming out to be cheaper

2. Which area to stay in Paris so that it doesn't cost me an arm and a leg but I can get to the sight fairly easily (preferably walk)

3. How to get to Normandy from Paris (I keep reading of some TVR train, I think, but can't find much info. on it)

4. Once done in Normandy - Do I go to Brussels or Amsterdam - My preference for sight seeing is Castles, World war 2 related sights, beautiful architecture, etc. Museums are not the first thing on my list.

5. Once I decide either Brussels or Amsterdam, or may be someone will suggest something completely different how do I get there from Normandy? Do I need to go back to Paris to do that?


Thank you so much in advance!!!
