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 some historical perspective at Chateau de Pierrefonds and Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre and Arc de Triomphe.
