Day Trips Out of Paris

Recommended Posts

@Parigi Indeed, I'm aware of that (tried to cover it with the 'train ride OR SO' bit). One can also take two trains I'm sure. Either way, I meant it's not a prohibitively difficult/long journey to make.

I need recommendations for a day trip out of Paris for dining and wine. There and back in one day. Michelin star quality not necessary, just delicious. Middle of April 2011.

Here's one: TGV to Dijon, about an hour and a half. Go in the morning, walk into town, try to go on a market day, work up an appetite and have lunch at Bistrot des Halles across the street or get a cab to Le Pré aux Clercs ..

Dijon excellent choice.

Beaune too.

And Rouen.

All beautiful towns with great food. Easy transport with Paris.

Take the train from Gare St. Lazare (or drive - it's about 2 hours) to Honfleur, a delightful and relatively unspoiled seaport near the mouth of the Seine.The Michelin 1-star resto, Sa Qua Na, there has gotten some good (and also bad) reviews. However, just walk down the street r. L'Homme de Bois to the resto at 30-32 (also called L'Homme de Bois) for a fantastic meal among the locals and friendly service at about 1/5 the price.You won't regret it!

We had planned to go to Une Ile in Angers, just over an hour from Paris by TGV. Lunch reservations made, train schedule researched from home. All systems go. Then we went to the SNCF boutique to buy the train tickets and found that the short notice fare was 270€ instead of the well under 50€ I had seen on the net. We canceled our lunch reservation and will enjoy this outing another time when I buy the tickets in good time.

This is a sweet address. http://www.une-ile.fr/
