A beautiful and romantic city fit for any itinerary, Paris brims with historic associations and remains vastly influential in the realms of culture, art, fashion, food and design.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Eiffel Tower and Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Île de la Cité and Arboretum de la Vallee-aux-Loups. Venture out of the city with trips to Nogent-le-Roi (Eglise Saint Sulpice & Parc du Chateau de Nogent le Roi) and Eglise Sainte-Anne de Gassicourt (in Mantes-la-Jolie). There's lots more to do: step off the mainland to explore Ile Saint-Louis, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Jardin des Plantes, admire the striking features of Arc de Triomphe, and steep yourself in history at The Paris Catacombs.
