Trip from Paris to Giverny, Rouen, & the D-Day beaches

We are visiting Paris in Sept for 15 days, and looking to take a couple side trips. One would be to Giverny, then on to Rouen and spending the night and perhaps travelling on the following day to the D-Day beaches.What is the best way to accomplish it?ThanksEric

    Hi Eric,

    To get to Giverny, you would take a direct train from Paris to the town of Vernon. In Vernon, you can take a bus or even walk to get to the gardens and Monet's home, which are about 5 km away. Trains from Paris to Vernon are Intercité trains or regional TER trains.

    For the D-Day beaches, you would take the train to either Bayeux or Caen. Bayeux is the closest station to the American beaches and Caen is the closest station to the Allied beaches.

    Direct Intercité trains run from Paris to Bayeux, Paris to Caen, or Paris to Rouen.

    You can check schedules and ticket costs by searching a route under 'Find Train Tickets' right on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com. Generally, trains in France can be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date.
