    As has been said previously Normandy is massive - the D-Day areas could take up most of your time, and Mont St Michel is at the far end almost in Brittany - but well worth a day's visit.. Driving in Paris is not for the faint hearted - I drive in cities a lot but found the Paris drivers were a law unto themselves and you will need to be quick witted to manage the sudden changes of direction.
