When traveling to and through France, you’ll undoubtedly be spending time in its capital city, Paris. A few days can be used just to explore the city, but if you’re spending more than four nights in Paris and its surrounding neighborhoods, we’ve put together our top 4 day trips to take from Paris.

DISNEYLAND PARIS

Disneyland Paris is located about 20 miles outside of the city and is easily accessible by train or car. There are two parks to experience: Disneyland and Walt Disney Studios. Take the RER system – France’s rapid transit system that services Paris and surrounding suburbs – to Disneyland Paris for a 40-minute trip.

PALACE OF VERSAILLES

The Palace of Versailles dates back to the 17th century. It was first built as a hunting lodge for King Louis XIII, which he later replaced with a bigger (and better) chateau. The surrounding land was purchased and converted into gardens and a park. Today, the gardens and the park are both main attractions as well as the Estate of Trianon and the Room of Mirrors within the palace itself. The Palace of Versailles is accessible by car or train from Paris and can be visited independently or on a half or full-day tour (public or private).

LOIRE VALLEY

Loire Valley is a popular day trip to take from Paris. With gardens, castles, wine and charming villages, it offers a mesmerizing and worthwhile experience.

Tenon Tip: Book a guided tour to easily see the multiple castles in this area. Half-day and full-day tours are available. Ask a travel specialist for more information about a guided tour of Loire Valley when you request a quote about a trip to France.

NORMANDY / D-DAY LANDING BEACHES

For those travelers interested in places of historical significance, Normandy must make your list of day trips to take from Paris. Here, you can visit World War II Landing Beaches, Mont Saint-Michel, medieval communes and much more. Similar to Loire Valley, we recommend booking a D-Day-focused tour to see all the significant sights while on your day trip.
