Most people who come to Paris again and again, rarely become tired of it… However, if you want to explore and discover beyond the city limits, there are plently of day trips from Paris by train! I want to introduce you to my personal guide to trips from Paris by train, and each of them are close enough to go back and forth in a day.

First of, there is a small town called Provins. It is an hour and 25 mins south-east of Paris, and you can depart from the train station Gare de l’Est. Provins is an ancient town, and get you back to the Middle Ages, with beautifully and amazing buildings, and winding streets. If you have the slightest interest in history, this would be the perfect day trip for you. Provins is also well-known for its rose-derived produce so use it as an excuse to stock up on rose petal jam.

You can take a local train from Gare de l’Est – they leave every half an hour. You won’t save any money by booking in advance so you can just stroll up on the day.

Provins, France

Provins, with it’s beautiful, narrow streets and historical aspects…


Next up is Giverny, which is also included in a day trip in our beneficial packages on ParisByM. You will be amazed by the very famous series of water lily paintings by the Claude Monet. Giverny is just 45 minutes from the train station Gare Saint Lazare station, and you can go with a fast train. The house and the garden is inspired by Monet’s life work. When you take the train, you will arrive in Vernon, from where it is approximately an hour walk from the train station. You can also rent bikes, because some companies offer bike rental just outside the train station, or else you can take a very short bus ride towards Giverny. You will hereby find this beautiful garden, which is very peaceful. At summertime the garden is in full bloom, which leaves you amazed, and the impression will for sure stay with you forever. Make sure not to miss!

Giverny, Paris

Giverny.. Amazing!


Auvers-sur Oise is the place, where painter Vincent Van Gogh famously worked and died. In 70 short days, Van Gogh painted prolifically, creating on average one work every day until his death. If you’re not a Van Gogh fan, you will still be amazed by this beautiful town, and it’s fields which inspired his work. You can head to the Auberge Ravoux, to see the famous apartment where Van Gogh lived his very final months, or you can enjoy your lunch there at table number five, which is where Van Gogh took his meals… Down the memory lane! If you pass by the village church, you will see the cemerety where the famous artist is buried. Amazing choice for a trip outside of Paris by train!

On weekends and holidays from April – October a direct train to Auvers leaves from Gare du Nord around 10am, taking 35 minutes. All other times, visitors must take a train from either Gare du Nord or St. Lazare, then transfer to an Auvers-bound train at Valmondois, Pointoise or St. Ouen. You do not have to book in advance.

Auverns, France

Last recommendation for a day trip by train, is Fontainebleau-Avon. The amazing town is just forty minutes from Paris, and the forest of Fontainebleau is just moments from the station, which covers 100 square miles. You can enjoy a picnic in the former royal hunting grounds, or go towards the castle, which is the city’s main monument. The Château de Fontainebleau was once the country seat to French royals, which goes back to the 16th century.

There is a lot to see – for example galleries, art and Marie Antoinette’s bed! You have to take a day off your calender to have enough time to explore this amazing place, in an relaxed pace… It’s a straightforward 40 minute train ride from Gare de Lyon to the Fontainebleau-Avon station. This is a local train you needn’t book in advance. If you’re headed for the castle then take the ‘Ligne A’ bus destined for Les Lilas, alighting at the ‘Château’ stop. Or else you can walk approximately 35 minutes.


Fontainebleau, and it’s amazing castle.. One of the most visited monuments in France!

This were my recommendations for trips from Paris by train… Hope you enjoyed the guide I completed for you, if your wanderlust outside of Paris increases.

Until next time…

Dream of visiting Paris but don't think you can afford this posh city? Here's how to do Paris on a budget!:

First and foremost; or tip numero uno is to compare hotel rates online, in order to get the best possible rates for your stay. We all know, that hotels in Paris are quite expensive – however, if you do a bit of market research you can get some amazing deals!

Boutique Hostel in Paris

Plug Inn Boutique Hostel, Paris

Another good tip when searching for cheap accommodations, is to look for hotels that are just slightly out of the city centre (but next to a Metro station) and you can save a good amount of cash. Here is some suggestions we found on the Internet, hence beware that we did not personally assess them:

Hotel Georgette which is just a few-minute walk from the Métro (Rambuteau) and also not far from Pont Neuf and Palais Royal. Smart choice and value for money.


Not far from there you find, Hotel Ecole Centrale which is also located right next to a Métro station (Arts-et-Métiers). 


Hotel de la Herse d’Or is located at the heart of the Marais district and just a short walk from the Bastille.


Welcome hotel enjoys a fantastic location right next to Boulevard Saint-Germain, and a short walk from the Seine, Musée d’Orsay, Musée Rodin and the Luxembourg Gardens. 


The Plug Inn Boutique Hostel, in the midst of Montmartre, is very popular and charming, and although it is a hostel, there are also double rooms.


BLC Design Hotel is on Rue Richard Lenoir, between the Bastille and the famous Père Lachaise Cemetery.


Last but not least, Hotel Regyn’s Montmartre is a small, romantic and characterful hotel right in the vivid heart of Montmartre.


Other than that, we strongly recommed Airbnb, where you can rent private apartments – or rooms if you are a single traveller. Note that Airbnb is not always the cheapest possible solution; however this is probably the most authentic choice, for your stay in Paris. Live, eat and sleep like a real Parisian!

Why Use a Trip Planner in Paris

Itravel planner paris n today’s world of instant gratification, more and more companies are streamlining their products and services to facilitate customer demands, especially in major metropolitan areas like Paris. As a traveler, it’s easy to think that, with everything at your fingertips, you no longer need the help of a travel planner. However, this is simply not true. With so many new options, you now need a travel planner more than ever. Here are the top reasons why you should let a travel planner arrange your next Parisian adventure.

Plain and simple, a travel planner saves you time. While you now have the option to make those dinner reservations on-line, think about how many hours you’ll be spending searching the web for a good restaurant, checking to make sure it’s in your price range, finding the distance from your hotel, makingtravel planner paris sure you have transportation to and from the restaurant, checking to see if it has child-friendly options for your picky toddler, and going through the process again if you can’t get a reservation (as is often the case in Paris).

 A travel planner is familiar with local restaurants, hotels, and other locations and can give personal recommendations based on her own experiences. She may be familiar with the staff who can guarantee you a pleasant experience and will take care of all the reservations, questions, and follow-ups without you having to lift a planner paris

Contrary to popular belief, a travel planner can actually save you money. While hard to believe, it’s actually true! A travel planner scours the web and her list of well-connected contacts for the best deals and can often provide you with options that you would be unable to find yourself. So you ultimately end up paying less for the experience you want without having to settle for the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th best option at an equal or even higher price.

An experienced travel planner has many contacts in her network who can help you get exactly what you’re looking for at a fraction of the cost. When you hire a travel planner, you not only have one person’s suggestions and knowledge, but that of her network, as well. Remember that all of these contacts are equally, if not more knowledgable of the area and will ensure that youtravel planner paris get the best experience possible.

With a travel planner, you will always have a wealth of insider information at your fingertips that you probably didn’t know about before. For example, going to the top of Eiffel Tower is a must for many vacationers. However, what many don’t realize is that you need to buy your tickets months in advance to avoid long lines and possible disappointment. A travel planner is aware of this and will make sure that you get to the top hassle-free.

As you are probably aware, life doesn’t always go as planned. This is especially true when traveling. If your flight has ever been delayed or your hotel has mysteriously lost your reservation, you know what I mean.

travel planner paris

When you hire a travel planner, you are essentially purchasing a type of travel insurance. Your planner knows that mistakes happen and has encountered more than her fair share in her line of work. Because of this experience, she will be better equipped to solve these problems than you would be trying to solve them yourself.

This is especially true in Paris. It is common to have flights delayed and transportation halted due to employee strikes. While this may come as a shock to you, your travel planner is accustomed to these problems and will be able to solve them with relative ease.

Most importantly, a travel planner ensures that you don’t have to worry on your vacation. You’re in Paris to get away from your day-to-day stress, not accumulate more. Why spend the time, money, and sanity figuring out your next voyage when you could have someone else take care of all the detravel planner paris tails? 

So, the next time you’re thinking about tackling your trip’s itinerary, take a step back and think about whether you really have the resources to plan this one out. Your next Parisian adventure should be your best one yet, and, in the hands of a professional travel planner, it will be.
