Sightseeing Using Trains in Île-de-France

Take a train to Champagne sur Seine and bike to Moret sur Loing http://www.ville-moret-sur-loing.fr

Moret sur Loing, an ancient stronghold on the border of France and Burgundy, close to Fontainebleau. Less than an hour from Paris.

Exploring nature, art or history in the Greater Paris area just got easier.

The simple search words “impressionists transilien and bike” in a search engine, points directly to the correct and simple-to-use new page “Sightseeing with Transilien .

While searching transportation information on the Chantilly Racecourse, I found an interesting Australian website: Rome2Rio. They provide info on TER, RER, taxi, car, etc.

The SNCF radio pop-up window starts playing to put you in the mood. If you hold a monthly or annual Navigo pass visit Use Navigo for Weekend and Holiday Advantages if you want to tour in zones 1 through 5 around Paris.

Then take your pass and enjoy some of these suggestions in the Île-de-France region:
