We will be in Paris for 5 days in early December for our 25th wedding anniversary. After that we plan to pick up a hire car for seven days. This is my current itinerary. Please let me know if you think it's okay or should we alter it in any way. We have spent a couple of weeks in the southern and centre of France previous to this holiday.
Day 1 Pick up hire car and drive to Villiers Bretonneux. Keen to visit the Australian Memorial etc. Stay in Amiens? Albert?
Day 2 Spend the day in this area sightseeing. Any suggestions?
Day 3 Drive to Bayeux. Anywhere we should stop to visit on the way?
Day 4 Visit the Bayeux Tapestry. Drive to Mont St Michel. Overnight in Mont St Michel. Suggestions where to stay? Mere Poulard?
Day 5 and 6. Visit the Abby. Or should we do this the previous day? Drive to Bloise. Stay 2 nights in this area and visit Chateau Chenoceau and Chaeau Chambord.
Day 7 Drive to Versaille. Visit the Palace. Stay overnight somewhere.
Day 8 Return to Paris. Overnight in city. Stay close to Opera. Catch Roissy bus the next morning for flights out of France.
I would very much like to hear your thoughts and suggestions on this rough itinerary. Also what driving in December will be like with regard to weather.
