Paris Day Trips


I'll be in Paris in April 2015 for a little over a week, and would like to take some day trips. I've been to Versailles, and will probably go back, but any other suggestions?

i guess you've been to a lot of diferent exhibition places : Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain, George Pompidou, Palais de Tokyo, Grande Galerie de l'Evolution, have a green tea and hammam at Complexe Commercial de la Mosquée de Paris, see a show in the Opera Garnier and visit the underground... around paris : Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte is the castle that inspired Louis XIV to build Versailles. Chartres and his cathedral that you can reach by train (I know a place to rent there). have a nice trip!

In April, I would say definitely take a day trip to Claude Monet's house and gardens at Giverny. See the real life inspiration for his famous Water Lilies and then go to Musee de l'Orangerie in Paris to admire the stunning paintings.

Hi Lisa, 

Deauville and Trouville-sur-Mer in Normandy are two beautiful towns just 2 hours away from Paris. You can buy last minute train tickets either on SNCF website, or even at the train station. We've recently posted a photo story on our blog, have a look at the pictures: they might inspire you to go there:

Enjoy your time in Paris!

I lived in Dijon and loved it! Maybe an hour thirty on TGV, charming town!  The Palace of the Dukes of Burgundy is a beautiful representation of Burgundian architecture and rooftops and Kir Lake is gorgeous. A must if you love wine.

you can do a day tour of some well know chateaux as well along the Loire Valley. Check into tours, or rent a car, and visit Château de Chenonceau and Château de Chambord. Both are spectacular and the scenery getting there is beautiful too!
