If you're staying some time in Paris, then consider a day trip outside the capital. There are plenty of places to choose from, within easy reach either by train or by car from the French capital. Some are close by each other, so you can combine them to make a longer trip.

From Rouen to the north west round to Chartres just south east of Paris, this guide also allows you to plan a day or overnight stay if you are en route to other destinations within France.
