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.
Visiting Île de la Cité and Fronton Chiquito de Cambo will get you outdoors. Get a sense of the local culture at Eiffel Tower and The Trianons & The Hamlet. Explore Paris' surroundings by going to Ferme de Viltain (in Jouy en Josas), Eglise Saint Louis (in Villemomble) and Musee Ivan Tourgueniev (in Bougival). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, examine the collection at Musee du Peigne, explore the different monuments and memorials at Montparnasse Cemetery (Cimetiere Montparnasse), and admire the landmark architecture of Sainte-Chapelle.

You can plan Paris trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
