<b>Great Day Trip Ideas from our Hostels in Paris</b> <p> Whilst staying at one of our Paris hostels, it is hard to imagine running out of things to do in this culturally rich and fascinating city. However, you might enjoy an opportunity to explore outside Paris and escape from the bustling crowds that seem to surround many hostels in Paris. Here are some of our favourite day trips that we have rustled up for those of you staying in our Paris hostels. Day trips that will not only ensure you take full advantage of your stay in this enthralling region but guarantee you’ll get back to our Paris hostels in time for supper. </p> <p><b>Day Trip to Versailles</b>: No trip to our Paris hostels is complete without a visit to the ultimate symbol of the French monarchy and the subsequent Revolution of 1789. The opulent palace and its idyllic gardens are only 30 minutes from Paris and is the perfect day trip for any history students amongst you.</p> <p><b>Day Trip to Monet’s Gardens</b>: Less than an hour’s train journey away, a stay in our Paris hostels will be enriched by an excursion to the famous impressionist painter, Claude Monet’s garden, which he immortalised in some of his most glorious paintings.</p> <p><b>Day Trip to Disneyland Paris</b>: Do not even attempt to deny that going to Disneyland Paris is not a dream come true for most of you and even better, it is only a 35 minute train journey on the RER from many of your Paris hostels.</p> <p><b>Day Trip to Orleans</b>: Your stay in our Paris hostels should definitely include a day trip to Orleans, which is famously known as the home of Joan of Arc. There are numerous attractions to amuse you. </p> <p><b>Day Trip to Bruges</b>: If you’re feeling more adventurous, consider a day trip to the charming medieval town of Bruges. While a bit of trek – around 2 ½ hours via train – the ‘Little Venice of the North’ is well worth the effort. </p> <p><b>Day Trip to Le Mont Saint Michel</b>: Looking to escape the busyness of Paris hostels? This scenic day trip to the fairy-tale island of Mont St-Michel includes the chance to look round an exquisite Benedictine abbey which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.</p> <p><b>Day Trip to D-day Beaches</b>: Located in the beautiful Norman countryside and only a couple of hours train journey from Paris, the venerable D-day beaches will makes for a memorable day trip whilst staying at our Paris hostels.</p>
