Day trips from Paris... Rouen?

Jump to last reply

My husband, teen daughter, and myself hope to be in Paris the last week of March, 2014.

Husband and I have been before, for a full week, and this time, we want to see things we missed and show my daughter a few of the "highlights".

Originally, we were going to stay in Paris five nights and go to Avignon or Aix-en-Provence for five nights, but... My regular pet-sitter bailed on me. In light of possibly having to board our dog now, I'm probably shortening the overall trip, but extending our stay in Paris to a week. This is kinda-sorta up in the air, but as of now, I'm planning for a week based in Paris. (And yes, I have a hotel booked for the full week already.)

So, we were planning 3 to 4 full days in Paris, and a couple of day excursions, by train or tour bus.
Of the latter, haven't really found anything worthwhile...

One trip is definitely to Chartres, which we missed last time. That leaves another.

Fwiw, we have been to Versailles and were underwhelmed, not looking to go again. None of us are interested in seeing the Loire Valley castles.

I really love medieval architecture and history, and was wondering if Rouen was worth while for a day trip. Is it fairly straightforward to get to?

What about Giverny? I'm not a huge Monet fan, but it looks pretty. :) Will it be in late March though?

Just looking to see some of the surrounding area, but within one to two hours away by train...

Thank you in advance for your tips and suggestions.
