Day Trip To Provins?

Jump to last reply

I'll be in Paris for 2 weeks, leaving next week. I've been to Paris many times, so some day trips would interest me. I've done Chartres, Versailles, Rouen, Vaux , Fontainebleau, Giverney. This time I want to go to Chantilly, maybe Chateau de Maintenon, and closer-to-Paris sites like St. Germain de Laye, Vincennes.

I love medieval history, so thought about Provins, being a walled town. Has anyone done this recently? I know there is the upper town, where all the sites are, which is quite an uphill trek from the train station. My walking is more limited than it used to be, so I hate to get worn
out before getting to the main attractions. Does anyone who's been know if there is a bus available, or taxis? I have read about the little tourist train, but it is just in the upper town.

My alternative to going on the train on my own is one of those tourist buses, like ParisVision,
Which gets you there, includes tickets for a couple of attractions, then takes you back to Paris. It's more expensive, but in my case maybe worth it. Anyone done that, who can comment, or done the train trip/walking option to Provins.?
