City of Light

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.
Get in touch with nature at Ile Saint-Louis and Île de la Cité. Explore hidden gems such as Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte and Porte d'Ardon. Venture out of the city with trips to Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Laon (in Laon), Chateau de Pierrefonds (in Pierrefonds) and Chateau de Fontainebleau (in Fontainebleau). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Eiffel Tower, admire the striking features of Arc de Triomphe, don't miss a visit to Hotel de Ville, and explore the historical opulence of Chateau de Maintenon.
