Head to Normandy by the sea from Paris with INSIDR’s self guided driving tour of D-Day beaches and the best places to visit in Normandy and Brittany.
DRIVING FROM PARIS TO NORMANDY
Normandy is a beautiful destination best reached by car because of its easy self-drive from Paris in only 3 hours. It is also best to reach by car because you will need a car to get around many different towns and to see the jaw-dropping natural landscapes- in addition to staying dry in the rain! If you will be arriving in Normandy from London instead of Paris, drive across the Eurotunnel and arrive in Rouen, which is the capital of Normandy and is the easiest city to connect to different coastal towns or beaches.
