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. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Chapelle Notre Dame de la Medaille Miraculeuse and 1st Arrondissement. Change things up with a short trip to Fontainebleau Forest (Foret de Fontainebleau) in Fontainebleau (about 1 hour away). And it doesn't end there: pause for some photo ops at Arc de Triomphe, admire the masterpieces at Musee d'Orsay, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, and enjoy the sand and surf at Paris Plage.
