Day trips outside of Paris

L’Île-de-France is not just made up of Paris, or Versailles and its famous castle, but is a large region with an abounding heritage of treasures from throughout the ages. By travelling just a few kilometres around the outskirts of Paris, you will soon find yourself in the heart of luxurious and poetic surroundings, such as Auvers-sur-Oise and Giverny, which provided great inspiration for impressionist painters such as CézanneMonet and Van Gogh. Or Barbizon's hamlet, a source of inspiration for Corot and Millet. Various castles can also be found in the outskirts of Paris, such as that of Malmaison, greatly appreciated byNapoleonVaux le Vicomte and its famous gardens, and the Royal Palace of Fontainebleau, the preferred residence of sovereigns throughout eight centuries. Or even the medieval city of Provins, which welcomes you into an amazing journey through time.
