There are buses and trains connecting the larger towns and cities in Normandy and you might also opt to do a bus tour. Driving is by far the best way to see the region however, particularly if you have babies or toddlers with you. Plan your route well in order to make the most of your trip and remember to incorporate some toddler friendly activities in order to keep little ones entertained.

The area is divided into two parts: upper Normandy and lower Normandy. Upper Normandy is home to the city of Rouen, the industrial port of Le Havre and the seaside resort of Deauville. Lower Normandy is where you’ll find the D-Day beaches, the 14th century town of Caen and Mont St. Michel. For tips on driving in France click here and for EU car seat laws, click here.
