About Attractions Outside Paris

Once you have spent a few days in the capital, it's time to get out of Paris and explore the many delights scattered within easy driving distance of the City of Light. You'll find that accommodation outside Paris is much cheaper too. Rent a car at Charles De Gaulle Airport and drive to Normandy. It's about 92km to Chartres, home of the stunning cathedral. You can also take in Rouen, Mont St. Michel, Dinan, Honfleur. History aficionados should visit the Normandy Beaches and the American, British and German war cemeteries.

Disneyland and Parc d'Asterix, the two main amusement parks close to Paris, will probably be your main concern if you are travelling with children. They will also enjoy Thoiry Zoo, a 55km drive west of Paris, and home to freely roaming big game. Other attractions in the vicinity of Paris that you should consider building your itinerary around include Versailles, Fontainebleau Castle, and Giverny.
