Total # of hours to visit Nevers & Lisieux from Paris?

I know that they are in 2 different locations, one east, and one west of Paris. So 2 separate morning. Can anyone offer a guestimate as to the number of total hours, from the time I leave Paris, to the time I get back to Paris?

I would just want to get a glimpse of the saints' relics and make it a quick but prayerful visit. I hear that there's really not much else to do while in either place (?)

I could take the early train. I am wondering if these can be done as 1/2 day trips only? So I can do other things when I get back to Paris (?)

Thanks.

It takes 4 hours by train to get from Paris to Nevers and back. There goes your 1/2 day.

Nevers is a very pretty town. I would not miss the Ducal Palace, the cathedral, a walk along the Loire and a visit to the china Museum ("Faïence" de Nevers is very famous).

I agree with Pvoyageuse. Nevers is certainly worth a full half day there plus travel. I thought the modern stained glass in the Cathedral particularly fine. The time getting to and from Lisieux is similar and there is less to see there beyond the shrine, in my opinion.

In Lisieux I really liked Saint Pierre Cathedral, which almost miraculously escaped the WW2 bombardments that destroyed a lot of Lisieux. Saint Pierre is also the church that Sainte Therese went to when she was young. When we were there we also enjoyed the very good market.

PS - Can someone also tell me please, what and how 's the best way to organize my trip to Town of Nevers please? Are all these attractions within walking distance? Do I need taxi from the train station? What should I see first, etc. etc. Thank you so much.

No, you don't need a taxi, Nevers is very walkable Start by the Chapel of Bernardette Soubirous. Then cross Parc Salengro to get to the Cathedral and Ducal Palace. Use google to see your itinerary.
