One Hour and Ten Minutes from Paris

Off to the train station!

I love a good train. In the past few months, I’ve taken advantage of the French rail system for some fantastic day trips. I’ve written about them for various publications (like Thrillist and EuroCheapo), but it had been a while since I’d taken a proper cheap train ride outside of Paris. Orleans in 2014 was actually the last real day trip, or at least memorable one.

Over the past few months, I made it a mission to get out of the city. These three destinations were all perfect for a day of wandering and exploring, but I wouldn’t go too crazy trying to spend too much time. 

Plan on about one hour and ten minutes to get to each, but be sure to book a direct train. And pack an umbrella, because if you have my luck, you'll visit all of these places in the rain.
