It would be easy to spend of all your time in France exploring Paris, but there are a number of adventures to experience just outside the capital. See more of the country on a day tour from Paris—here are the top day trip destinations to consider.

Palace of Versailles — 12 miles (20 km) from Paris
The Palace of Versailles (Château de Versailles) is one of the most popular and easily accessible day trip destinations from Paris. As the King of France's seat of power for several centuries, the palace is both a historical treasure and a feast for the eyes. Both half- and full-day tour options are available with varying group sizes, and it's possible to bypass the crowds with skip-the-line tickets. Be sure to wander the elaborate gardens after you explore the interior.

Champagne — 90 miles (145 km) from Paris
This world-famous wine region is popular among visitors to Paris for its grapes, wineries, and proximity to the city, with the town of Reims just 1.5 hours away by road. Stop into famous Champagne cellars such as Mumm and Mercier for a look at the vineyards and bubbly tastings, or choose a tour that takes you to Reims' stunning Notre Dame Cathedral. Full-day tours from Paris to Champagne usually last about 10 hours.

Loire Valley — 105 miles (170 km) from Paris
About two hours away from Paris by road, the Loire Valley and its castles transport visitors back in time for a feel of French aristocratic life. Three of the most popular stops are Chenonceau Castle, Chateau de Cheverny, and Chateau de Chambord, each of which have fascinating histories and elegant grounds. Full-day tours include time for lunch in a picturesque Loire Valley town, plenty of photo ops, and informative commentary.

Normandy —175 miles (280 km) from Paris
Head to the Normandy coast for a day immersed in World War II history. Most tours visit important war sites such as Omaha Beach, the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial, and the Caen Memorial, all of which offer gripping perspectives on the battles fought by Allied soldiers. Tours from Paris can last as long as 14 hours, so be prepared for a long day and keep in mind that the drive through the countryside to Normandy takes 3 to 4 hours.

Mont St-Michel — 210 miles (340 km) from Paris
Set about 3.5 hours from Paris by road, the UNESCO-listed Mont St-Michel is a favorite day trip destination from Paris. On a full-day tour, explore the tiny island's ancient hilltop Benedictine abbey and small village of atmospheric streets lined with shops and eateries.
