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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Place des Vosges and Hotel de Ville. Step out of Paris with an excursion to Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte in Maincy--about 54 minutes away. There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Eiffel Tower, snap pictures at Pont-Neuf, see the interesting displays at Musee des Arts Forains, and admire the masterpieces at Louvre Museum.

For reviews, more things to do, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Paris route planning site.
