About

Description

With so many ways to spend a day trip from Paris, you'll be saying c'est magnifique in no time! The idyllic French countryside and the coast of the English Channel are not out of reach, with various tours that include comfy transport to and from Paris.

Take a guided or self-guided tour to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Mont Saint-Michel at low tide and discover this medieval Benedictine Abbey. Soak in the seascape and the Gothic architecture – it won't be hard to picture this place as it was 1,000 years ago.

If decadence is what you fancy, then a Palace of Versailles and garden tour ticket may be just your cup of tea. Have your cake (and eat it, too) like Marie Antionette at the height of royal excess in French history.

Marvel at the Baroque architecture, and admire the gold, silk, and crystal details within its 200+ rooms. Stroll through the luscious gardens and spend a day like royalty with private transport to and from the palace.

In addition to these must-sees, a day trip from Paris is brimming with possibilities – including your wine glass. Explore the Loire Valley and immerse yourself into a fairy tale with a wine tasting and classic 16th-century French châteaux as your backdrop.

Looking for more action? Learn about a different side of modern French history on the beaches of Normandy at the Utah Beach Landing Museum. Or, take an uplifting tour through Monet's gardens to see where this famous Impressionist artist found inspiration for his Waterlilies series, the last and greatest pieces of his lifetime.

One of the world's largest and most authoritative museums, the Louvre's magnificent classical silhouette (and funky glass pyramid) are well-known attractions in the center of Paris. But as nice as the Louvre is from the outside, its real magic is in the inside. The Louvre's collection ranges from Mesopotamian, Egyptian, and Greek antiquities, with masterpieces by Da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Rembrandt. With 35,000 works of art (all created before 1848), it's a big, and worthwhile, commitment. The Louvre is one of Paris's Big Three museums; the other two are the Musée d'Orsay (with Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art from the years 1848-1914) and the Centre Pompidou (with 20th-century works created after 1914).

Housed in the stunning Beaux-Arts style Gare d'Orsay railway station, The Musée d'Orsay is home to significant and stunning works by painters including Gauguin, Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, and Van Gogh. It's widely considered to be one of the most culturally important museums in the world. Its entire collection is from the period 1848-1914, including many of the most significant Impressionist and post-Impressionist paintings ever created. Chronologically, the works come after those of the neighboring Louvre, and before the collection of the nearby Pompidou Centre.
