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.
Visit Eiffel Tower and Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre for their historical value. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Chateau de Fontainebleau and Île de la Cité. Explore Paris' surroundings by going to Basilica Cathedral of Saint-Denis (in Saint-Denis), Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte (in Maincy) and Chateau de Maintenon (in Maintenon). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Latin Quarter, get engrossed in the history at Memorial De La Shoah, admire the masterpieces at Louvre Museum, and examine the collection at Musee des Arts Forains.
