Chartres, France, is the site of one of Europe's best-known cathedrals, and is an easy day trip 55 mi/90 km southwest from Paris. Frequent trains run from Paris and take about an hour each way.
Chartres sits atop a small hill, so the soaring cathedral can be seen from a distance.
The old town of Chartres is also fun to explore with its ancient architecture and boutique shops. There is an interesting fine-arts museum just north of the cathedral.
