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.
You've added Moulin Rouge, Champs-Elysees, Arbane, and other attractions to your itinerary.

Venture out of the city with trips to La Hotte du Diable (in Coincy), Champagne Tarlant (in Oeuilly) and Réunion des Musées Nationaux et Grand Palais (in Rueil-Malmaison). The adventure continues: admire the striking features of Louvre Museum, take in nature's colorful creations at Luxembourg Gardens, appreciate the history behind Arc de Triomphe, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre.
