Paris Day Trips -- Lyon, Dijon, Bruges?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone. My husband and I will be in Paris for 5 full days this coming August. One of those days, I would like to take a day trip via the TGV. Based on old forum posts, it looks like a lot of people love Dijon, though I noticed that the guidebooks devote little more than a page or two to it. Lyon is another option. Also, some say that a day trip to Bruges is not feasible while other say they've done it and loved it. So, I'm curious as to what you all recommend. If there are any day trip ideas beyond those that I've listed, I would love to hear them.

By way of background, I studied in Paris and lived with a French family in 2004, so I've already hit all the Paris attractions at least once (otherwise, I know I would likely be advised to just skip the day trip and spend all 5 days in Paris). Also, I've already done day trips to Monet's garden in Giverny and Versailles.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
