    Paris

    France
    2862 reviews

    Paris, it truly is a magical city even though the amount of tourists is overwhelming. After the major sites, hit the back roads and anything without an English menu.

    Versailles

    France
    140 reviews

    Visit the truly enchanting palace of the Sun King Louis XVI just outside of Paris. It is an hour's ride away but the sight will simply mesmerize you. Totally worth the waiting. Probably the best maintained palace in the whole world.

    Giverny

    France
    16 reviews

    Wonderful place for people who admire Monet's paintings! The gardens are incredibly beautiful and the atmosphere there is much better than I expected. Try to go in a sunny day, it makes a great difference. I totally recommend this visit, and the small village of Giverny is also a great place to spend some hours.

    Fontainebleau

    France
    7 reviews

    Best known for Fontainebleau Chateau and business school INSEAD, Fonty is a great place for folks who like hiking in the woods and enjoying the french countryside. A short drive takes you to famous town for painters, Barbizon.

    Chartres

    France
    5 reviews

    This small town Chartres is a great place to visit if you are staying in Paris. The town itself is not that big, and you can get there by a short train ride from Paris. The cathedral is one of the best Gothic architectures in the world. The stained glasses in the cathedral survived the wars. Beautiful art.

    Reims

    France
    16 reviews

    There wasn't a lot to see in Reims but our goal was to have lunch (achieved) and to buy some champagne we couldn't buy in Canada (achieved) so the visit was a success.

    St-Germain-en-Laye

    France
    3 reviews

    Great trip to get away from Paris. Just take the RER A straight into St Germain to see what an upscale suburb of Paris looks like. Beautiful mansions, cute cafes and, of course, the palace where Louis XIV was born! There are great gardens around here and a vineyard on the grounds of the chateau.

    Auvers-sur-Oise

    France
    4 reviews

    Visiting Auvers-Sur-Oise is like getting into a Cezanne painting. It is a small town near CDG airport (about 40 minutes with a car). I had a connection through Paris, only 5 hours which led me visiting this really sweet town. The streets are filled with little stores and pastries. The main attractions are Ch√Ęteau d'Auvers, Van Gogh' house, and Van ...

    Vernon

    France
    2 reviews

    This a nice little town on the banks of the Seine. The main reason to come here is to go to the gardens at Giverny. We liked walking around the town because most of the tourists are at the gardens so you can get a slice of France unencumbered.

    Saint-Denis

    France
    3 reviews

    St. Denis was once a historic town, now it looks like a mishmash of architectural styles and has some less savory populations dwelling about. As a day trip from Paris it's a great idea, especially because the church at St Denis is quite a treat, but I'd recommend not staying here at night.
