A little day trip from Pairs to Chartres is well worth it. Even if you are not into Cathedrals, the town is a nice little getaway from the busy streets of Paris. Also strangely our train from Paris to Chartres did not have a machine or person that checked the tickets and our tickets were good for two months.
To this day we do not know why that is or if we accidentally missed a machine that would check the tickets but if we wanted to we could have easily ridden the train every day for the price of one ticket.
From what I have read that really pretty blue colour is why the Cathedral is famous. They call is Chartres Blue.
