Is the hustle and bustle of Paris starting to wear you down? No worries, we have multiple great day trips from Paris with our very own private luxury Chaffeur who will pick you up from your door and deliver you in comfortable style to the following fabulous places near Paris:

Rouen Full Day Trip - Click HERE to BOOK

A great Paris day trip is Rouen - a charming town in the Normandy region of France, about an hour and a half north of Paris. You’ll find brightly colored half-timbered buildings, a gorgeous cathedral, and a fancy astronomical clock tower. Rouen is also known for being where Joan of Arc was executed and you can visit a tower where she was held (la Tour Jeanne d’Arc).

Tip: Plan your trip during the Normandy Gastronomy/Food Festival - its amazing and a great way to sample specialties from the region without the restaurant price. Try local beer, spice bread, cider, sausage, a "Normandy Rose” apple funnel cake, and more!  If you won’t be around during the festival, the main square and old town also have plenty of lunch options.

While in Rouen we checked out the cathedral, famously painted by Claude Monet and take the tour of the "gros horloge” clock tower. Definitely do this – you’ll have fantastic views of the city.

Versailles Full Day Trip - CLICK HERE to BOOK

We couldn’t talk about day trips from Paris without mentioning Versailles. Versailles is located just southwest of Paris. For visiting the castle, our best advice is to purchase your tickets online and print them before you go. You’ll be able to skip the line!

Be sure to visit the inside of the castle (an audioguide is included!), eat lunch at a place on the grounds, and then explore the gardens in the afternoon. Don’t forget about the Grand and Petit Trianon and the Queen’s Hamlet. The Queen’s Hamlet is where Marie Antoinette would go to get away from the hassle of castle life and pretend she was in a quaint village. Really, it’s adorable. It even includes a working farm and vineyard that is still functioning today!

Fontainebleau 5 hr Tour - CLICK HERE TO BOOK

Just as over the top as Versailles but no crowds! If you’ve already visited Versailles or you’re just trying to avoid the mass of tourists there, Fontainebleau is an excellent alternative. The chateau is huge, honestly, I might even prefer the Fontainebleau castle to Versailles. Gasp! I think it’s the architecture that does it for me. I love the steeply pitched roofs and little chimneys. And that staircase! The interior is just as opulent as Versailles and the grounds are beautifully manicured. Every inch of the chateau is opulent.

There are lots of great lunch places within walking distance of the castle.

Another bonus of Fontainebleau is the vast forest. If you have time, stop by the Office of Tourism beforehand for a map of the trails and take a peaceful walk through the forest.

Giverny 1/2 Day Trip - CLICK HERE to BOOK

Made famous by Monet’s gorgeous water lily paintings, Giverny is a wonderful place to visit during the spring and summer. You’ll be able to stroll through his gardens and home – it’s honestly like walking through one of his paintings! I would pass on Giverny if you’re going to be visiting during the fall or winter. The main attractions here are the gardens, and they don’t really start blooming until late May.

To avoid waiting in the super long line, you can purchase your Entry tickets online and print them at home.

There will be places to eat once you get to Giverny - La Capucine Giverny is a great spot with outdoor seating.

The gardens are breathtaking and Monet's house is absolutely adorable. They’ve preserved it quite well with his personal items, furniture, and a number of his paintings. Monet also has an impressive collection of Japanese prints and engravings, so you’ll be able to see many of these around the house as well.

Chantilly Castle 1/2 Day Trip - Click HERE to BOOK

Chantilly is one of the jewels in the crown of France's cultural heritage, and home to the intact treasures of a 19th century prince Henri d'Orleans, Duke of Aumale fifth son of Queen Marie-Amélie and King Louis-Philippe, the last King of France. Thanks to the precautions taken by the Duke of Aumale in his will, Chantilly remains, more than a century later, a showcase of preserved works where the charm of the 19th century continues to reign.

The Castle, the exquisite gardens and the stables are all to be seen. With an overall surface area of 115 hectares, the gardens of the Château de Chantilly are the result of several creations according to the fashion of each period: the French-style garden created by André Le Nôtre in the 17th century, the Anglo-Chinese Garden in the 18th century and the English Garden in the 19th century. These grounds provide a unique testament to the relationship between men and nature in the western world over more than three centuries.

The Great Stables were built by the architect Jean Aubert for Louis-Henri de Bourbon, the 7th prince of Condé. They are a veritable horses' palace!
