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 discover tucked-away gems like Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte and Briare aqueduct Pont-canal de Briare. Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Paris: Laon (Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Laon & Porte d'Ardon), Chateau de Fontainebleau (in Fontainebleau) and Chateau de Pierrefonds (in Pierrefonds). The adventure continues: shop like a local with Champs-Elysees, ponder the world of politics at Hotel de Ville, step off the mainland to explore Ile Saint-Louis, and take a stroll through Île de la Cité.

Virtually unchanged for the last six centuries, Venice is actually a group of islands made famous by a series of canals, bridges, monuments, piazzas, and narrow pedestrian lanes.
On the 12th (Sat), hunt for treasures at Mercati di Rialto, then browse the different shops at T Fondaco Dei Tedeschi, then appreciate the extensive heritage of Piazza San Marco, and finally examine the collection at Doge's Palace. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 13th (Sun): take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, admire the landmark architecture of Scuola Grande di San Rocco, then pause for some serene contemplation at San Giorgio Maggiore, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica di San Marco.

Plan my Venice trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
