1-2 day break from Paris - ideas?

Jump to last reply

We will be arriving from Naples and have 4 full days after that. Leaving from Paris. We have seen most of the tourist sites in Paris, and our only reason for ending there is more of a personal nature - no agenda, and we're comfortable just grabbing quick and easy but delicious food and drink, or having some fondue, or a small cafe/bistro with people watching. We can spend all 4 days there without regret or stress, but I thought it might be nice for my spouse to see a place not seen before. No more than 1-2 days, because as I said, we need some personal and "downtime" in Paris at the end before we fly home.

Possibilities:
1. Bruges
2. Ghent
3. Amsterdam
4. Strasbourg or some other good base in France other than Lyon, which we've already been to

Key factors would be:
1. Frequent and relatively easy trains to/from Paris- don't mind doing this in 1 day if we can - just to get bird's-eye view of the place
2. Direct flight from Naples? Or just get to Paris first and decide from there?
3. Walkable, picturesque - possibly bikes but would need to be tolerant of slow and clumsy bikers!
4. The more central the train station to the "sights", the better

If you had 1-2 days outside of Paris, and were willing to leave France, where would you go and why?
