Nearby places to visit outside of Paris

I'm planning a 2 week trip to Paris. Where are the places I should visit - a day trip - nearby outside Paris? I'll have to come back to my rent apartment in Paris the same day.

    If you're interested in champagne, I'd recommend a day trip to Epernay - Moet et Chandon does a great tour and you can wander up and down the Avenue de champagne. A lot of places are only open midweek and, having said that, a fair few are closed on Mondays too. The Moet tour, however is available Monday to Friday. There's a mix of very well known producers and smaller establishments. It's a very easy train ride from Paris.

    I vote for the Palace of Versailles. It is awesome, so grand, from the checkered flooring outside to the jaw dropping furnishings and immense rooms, not to mention the incredible view of the gardens from the palace and actually walking the gardens. You won't be disappointed, and you can be back to Paris the same day, the train is about an hour each way. Great way to spend a day. Enjoy your trip .

    From Paris take an early train to Vernon and then rent a bike and ride to Givernyand visit Monet's House and garden. Its an easy ride but you really experience the town and countryside. There is a walking or biking tour of Giverny that is fun. We got back, had hard cider (THE drink in Normandy) and a snack and took a late afternoon train back.

    Other thing we did was take a train from Paristo Bayeux and then went on a tour we had signed up for in advance of Omaha Beach D Day Monument, American cemetery and other D-Day sites. Took a late train back.

    Both of these were very do-able in one day. If you wanted to also see Mont San Michel along with the D-Day tour, it would take two days, in my opinion.

    For an easy day trip, Versailles - Château his a must. Accessible by RER, city train that accesses certain metro tracks, it can easely be done in a day. There is the main castel but also the gardens,if you go in spring, ih very colorful.

    For a fews days, you can do the Loire castels. The most note wherty are Fontainebleau, Château de Chambord but many more are one the list. Since you'll be in the region, make a stop in the city of Orleans (Centre), know for it's hystory and Joan of Arck.

    Lyon , a bit more south, is know for it's gastronomy. Heat in small restorants in the old town known as "bouchons". Litteraly, "cork", because of the good and affordable wine they serve.

    Money's Giverny (5 Stars)

    Les chateaux de la Loire (4 Stars)

    Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte is what Louis XIV was jealous about and the reason why he built Versailles. he can be an interesting visit before Versailles!

    Gare de Lyon e Rez de Chaussée de la se rendre sur le site de la SNCF pour consulter les horaires de la ligne R avoid the RER D that stops each stop.

    get down at Gare de Melun (a Train each 30mn, that lasts 25min.)

    then, you take a bus "Châteaubus" on Avenue Gallieni ( a bit on the left when you leave the train station), on weekends and days off from 29th March to 8th november

    or you can go with this private company, or drive... :


    you can also join Chartres and his cathedral. train every half hours from Montparnasse station.


    you can visit one or 2 castle of the Loire Valley.

    have a good trip

    I should add that we did not get to Versailles but that's another good day trip. And if you like biking, do the very easy Bike About Tours of Paris - we've done it twice and loved it.

    Take the train to Chartres; the cathedral is spectacular. Also, Fontainebleau. Both an easy day trip.
