  3. Parc zoologique de Thoiry


Just 40 kilometers (131 miles) from Paris, this zoo has become one of Europe's best-known and most original attractions. Drive round its popular safari park (while remaining inside the car at all times for safety reasons) and get amazingly close to jungle cats, bears and zebras. Other sections of the zoo are ideal for exploring on foot, giving you the chance to meet hippopotami, giraffes and monkeys, while the zoo's tiger tunnel rarely fails to impress! The castle situated at the heart of the park is worth visiting for its magnificent 18th-century furniture.
