Multi-day Tours and Trips from Paris
You’re spoiled for choice when it comes to multi-day trips from Paris. Whether you want to explore the coast in Normandy and Brittany, or fancy castle spotting in the Lorie Valley, there’s a trip here for you.
You could spend weeks in the city and still have only scratched the surface, as there’s a lot to see and do in Paris. Yet when you’ve seen all the main sights and visited a few museums, it’s time to get out of town.
2-day tours from Paris: D-Day beaches and Mont Saint-Michel
If you only have time for an overnight tour from Paris, this one ticks all the boxes. Traveling by coach through the Normandy countryside, you’ll stop in the medieval town of Rouen for a walking tour of the historic sights.
A visit to the pretty harbor at Honfleur follows, then it’s time to set foot on Omaha Beach. This was the site of the D-Day landings during World War I, and you can visit the cemeteries overlooking the sea too.
You’ll stay in Caen overnight, ready for some Brittany highlights on day two. The port city of Saint-Malo and the fortress of Mont Saint-Michel feature today. The latter is a UNESCO World Heritage site which you can explore at leisure before returning to the city.
This is one of the most popular multi-day tours from Paris to Mont Saint-Michel, so it’s a good idea to book in advance.
