Day Trips in France from Paris

There are so many things to see and do in and around the capital of France that you just might have to consider extending your stay in Paris! ParisCityVision has selected some of the best day trips from Paris. Although guide book readers might already have a solid, general notion of how to maximize your time in the City of Lights, here you’ll find an expert selection of day trips from Paris (Normandy, Mont St. Michel, Versailles, Giverny, etc.) and day trips by TGV (high-speed train) that’ll take you to the famous region of Provence, amongst others. Why not head to Reims or Epernay to taste some champagne? There are countless options that can be adapted to your needs and desires so that your stay in Paris will be both an easy and unforgettable one!

Everything is organized so that you just have to show up and have fun. For example, the Château de Fontainebleau, located just one hour from Paris, is a beautiful country residence that was used by French royalty for years. Surrounded by parkland and forested paths, it’s a fabulous place to get you in that romantic mood before an evening out at a great restaurant in Fontainebleau’s downtown.

Another must-see destination is Monet’s gardens in Giverny. Only a 45-minute drive away from Paris, you’ll be able to admire the gardens, now beautifully restored, from which Monet drew artistic inspiration for years. The Château at Versailles, one of the most famous symbols of French culture, offers visitors a breathtaking example of formal French gardens and insight into the fascinating history of France’s Kings. If you want a break from facts and dates, however, and need a day of pure entertainment and self-indulgence, why not spend the day at Disneyland Paris, an ideal family outing, or head to La Vallée Village for a day of shopping?

Just three hours from Paris and you could find yourself on the historic beaches of Normandy, in the town of Rouen and its famous cathedral, or on the charming port of Honfleur. Follow in the footsteps of Vincent Van Gogh in Auvers-sur-Oise where the conflicted artist ended his days and was buried next to his brother. Even the beautiful Provence towns of Avignon, St. Remy, and Les Baux de Provence are all reachable by TGV for a guided day trip from Paris. If you feel like jotting over the English Channel or crossing the border into Belgium, day trips to London or Bruges are more than possible (just don’t forget your passport!).
