Normandy From Paris

Jump to last reply

My mom and I have planned a trip to London (3 days/nights), Paris (4 days/nights), and Bruges/Brussels (3 days nights) this summer. My mom is extremely interested in seeing Normandy and this is now going to be a 'must do' (unfortunately this was a revelation that came about after we booked flights and decided on the 10 days). I've looked into the possibility of going from London, to Paris for 2 days (we've both been before so we're ok cutting it down, but 3 would be preferable), then to Bayeux by train, then Brussels by train from Bayeux, but the last leg of the train just seems too long and complicated.

So my question is do we take a train to Caen or Bayeux in the morning, pick up a day trip there, and then take a train back to Paris that evening? And if that's the case what are the best tours to take, preferably less than 200 Euro. This would be ideal as we wouldn't have to book another hotel and worry about or bags, but if option B is unanimously the way to go, we're comfortable with that as well.

OR do we take a train to Bayeux, explore the city, then pick up an early morning day trip and head back to Paris that night, for a quick one night stay, before carrying on to Brussels.


** This is a must do, we're well aware that it is a tight time crunch, but we're going to make it happen.
