Paris, the national capital, is located 25 miles (40 kilometers) east of Issou.
Visiting just one town or city, regardless of its popularity, can only ever give you a narrow glimpse into the broader qualities of a region. So schedule in some time to savour Ile-de-France's other cities, attractions and landscapes. Take a trip to the Neuville Lakes Water Sports Area and St Christophe Business Park in Cergy, about 13 miles (21 kilometers) away from Issou. If you feel like seeing more of this part of France, travel to Giverny to visit the Monet House Museum and Claude Monet's Garden. Giverny is 13 miles (21 kilometers) away.
When you are ready to head further afield beyond Issou, why not visit the nearest center. Paris lies 25 miles (40 kilometers) away and is home to visitor attractions like Wine Museum, Palais des Congres de Paris and Picasso Museum. Menagerie du Jardin des Plantes, Zenith de Paris and Place Charles de Gaulle Etoile are some other popular places worth checking out for those who have time to spare.
For a glimpse of the local culture, visit Ile-de-France's history museums, art galleries and theaters. A good trick to develop an understanding for a place is by getting an understanding of its history. While in Ile-de-France, take the time to stop by the area's fine castles.
Be sure to pack a camera and water bottle and join a knowledgeable guide for one of the city walking tours and culinary tours.
When the time comes to leave Ile-de-France, you'll be sure to bid this place a fond "Au revoir / À bientôt" But be comforted by the fact that you'll be leaving with memories and momentos that you'll cherish for a lifetime.
