Belgium for 6 days...tour Juno Beach in that limited time?

Husband and I have only a week to visit Belgium. Arrive in Brussels Nov 1st...hoping to day-trip or stay in Ghent or Brugge, but would like to see/tour Juno Beach if time. No car.

Are we taking on too much? If so...will drink beer and rent bikes !

Would love to hear about great beer/bike tours you've tried.

In my opinion it would be rather too much to visit both Normandy and Belgium in one week, without a car, unless perhaps you are actually flying into (or out of) Paris, and it also depends on exactly how much you want to do in Belgium. Look at the rail map on alleuroperail.com/eurorailway-maps/france-ma… - for Juno beach you would take the train from Paris-St. Lazare to Caen, from where there are buses to Courseulles-sur-Mer, see junobeach.org/centre/…getting.html

Thanks... I think perhaps you are right. No sense spending all the time in 'transit'. On to my next option...biking inbetween pubbing! Guess I will try to find some local bike tours that aren't too long (30 km?). Ideas welcomed!

You can just hire a bike and get a brochure from the tourist office about local cycling routes, or take a group tour:
