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.
Escape the urban bustle at Île de la Cité and Ile Saint-Louis. Let the collections at Louvre Museum and Musee d'Orsay capture your imagination. There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Eiffel Tower, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, get a taste of the local shopping with Champs-Elysees, and admire the striking features of Arc de Triomphe.
