Here’s a tip for summer travelers: the Château de Champs-sur-Marne, a magnificent castle about 30 minutes east of Paris, is reopening on June 29, 2013 after a massive renovation. Closed since 2006, the chateau has been featured in more than 80 films, including Sofia Coppola’s "Marie-Antoinette.”

Along with the beautiful interiors, the 200-acre park—classified one of France’s “remarkable gardens”—is a must visit. Adult tickets are priced at 7.50 euros.
