I need some big advice!

Jump to last reply

I am travelling with a friend from November 5 - November 23 and we are going to Barcelona, France, Ireland, and Germany. Our tentative itinerary looks something like this:

Spain: November 5th - Nobember 9th
France: November 9th - November 13th
Ireland: November 13th- November 18th
Germany: November 18th - November 23rd

We originally were only going to do Spain, Ireland and Germany but my travel partner is in the Canadian Military and we would both like to go to Vimy Ridge on November 11th. Where we really need the advice is on France. Since we are going to be there we want to go downtown as well to see the Eiffel tower. We plan on renting a car to drive to Vimy Ridge but are not sure whether to fly into Beauvais (more north on the way to Vimy Ridge) or Charles De Gaule (downtown) Should we try to do downtown Paris on the 9th/10th then drive to Vimy the evening of the 10th, then drive back to see a bit more. Is it possible to pick the rental car up at one airport and drop it off at another? Or would it be best to leave to change our itinerary leave Barcelona sooner or leave for Ireland later.

Hopefully I make sense. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated!
