Narrowing down daytrips from Paris

Jump to last reply

Upcoming trip to Paris will be our 4th. On previous visits we've done daytrips to Versailles, Fontainebleau, Chantilly and Vaux-le-Vicomte. We definitely want to go to Chartres, Giverny and Malmaison. On our short list of other destinations:

Rouen
Amboise
Auvers-sur-Oise
Ile des Impressionnistes

We haven't been to the Loire Valley and don't really want to do a big tour of multiple chateaux all in just one day, so are thinking of Amboise since we can tour the chateau and Da Vinci's home and still have time to experience the small town.

I am thinking we may be able to see Malmaison and Ile des Impressionnistes on the same day; if anyone has experience doing that, would appreciate info on the logisitics, overall experience (I've been to Malmaison many years ago, but not Ile des Impressionistes)

Auvers-sur-Oise - We're primarily interested in the Van Gogh associations

Rouen - for the cathedral and city in general -- not too interested in wineries

We know we won't be able to do all these; we will have to make a decision soon since train tickets to Rouen and Amboise are cheaper now than if we bought them on the spot.
Any input would be most welcome. Thanks.
