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:

Rent a bike in Paris and take it on the train to different destinations: Moret sur Loing, for example.

This Web site and and its blog articles are for travelers to Paris who are looking for advice from someone who lives in Paris. These tips are "for Parisians at heart". Many people would like to visit, some can and some cannot - so I will help you enjoy a glimpse of the city and its surroundings. This project has been ongoing since 2002. Prior to living in Paris (since 1992) my European history began in the early 70s with three years in Wiesbaden, Germany. My next foray onto the Continent was in the mid-80s after graduation from the University of Florida (where I met Erik): traveling around Europe and UK with my friend, Margie, hitchhiking around and working in Ireland. After living and working as a journalist in Sweden for four years, traveling on boats, the Trans-Siberian Railway, local trains and planes took Erik and I around the world. I began working as a flight attendant in 1990 for American Airlines, based in Chicago. We moved to Paris, France in 1992 where I commuted between Paris and Chicago for my flight attendant/stewardess job. Finally my inner voice said "Stop!" and I left American Airlines six weeks shy of 20 years January 1, 2010. Now that is over and I am back working as a journalist and photographer full time on Colleensparis.com - My videos are posted on YouTube on the colleensparis youtube channel. and I am active in Toastmasters 75. Enjoy!
