Moret is one of my favourite towns. A walled mediaeval frontier town with original gateways, the views of it from and around the river, the bridge and the mill streams are really beautiful. It is a pleasant place just to wander around and take in some of its historic buildings (like the church) and while it is not grand on the scale of some better-known "tourist town" it is well worth a stroll through (with coffee to follow!) if you are near.…

well worth a visit! Not far off the route I take through France, and I love visiting places that are off the radar, this is one of them.

The view fron outside the city walls is really lovely. The town is romantic, well preserved and really really nice. Also it has a long art tradition with impressionistes. A must go place.

Pretty little town that will fill a couple of hours. Nice creperie restaurant just off the market square. Worth a visit.

Moret sur Loing, just south of Fontainebleau, is only 50 minutes by train from the Gare de Lyon, Paris. Get either the train going in the direction of Montargis or Laroche Migennes. The train journey costs if you have a Navigo Pass, costing approximately 23 euros for a week's unlimited travel by metro, RER, bus and trains throughout the Ile de France, including travel to and from Charles de Gaulle airport. Bargain! From the Moret sur Loing/Veneux les Sablons station, walk down the beautiful tree-lined avenue to the Tourist Office and get a map and some information about what to see. This village has seen a lot of history over the centuries. Check out its significant sites or just enjoy exploring the quaint, picturesque streets or from the bridge, watch the anglers fishing in the river Loing. Little wonder Sisley was so inspired to paint various views of this charming village and the surrounding countryside! If possible, have lunch in Le Refuge, 8, rue de L'Eglise. This restaurant offers excellent cuisine at a very competitive price. After lunch, if time allows, maybe walk to St Mammes, another small neighbouring village which in the past was an important river port. To reach St Mammes cross the Moret bridge and walk along the pavement on the left hand side until you come to a bend in the road. Then go down some steps, again on the left, and walk along by the river. It's an easy walk, very picturesque and much needed after a substantial lunch!…
