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 a sense of the local culture at Louvre Museum and Musee d'Orsay. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Arc de Triomphe and Saint Germain des Pres Quarter. Venture out of the city with trips to Arboretum des Grandes Bruyères (in Ingrannes) and La Hotte du Diable (in Coincy). And it doesn't end there: admire the striking features of Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris, take a stroll through Le Marais, visit Ile Saint-Louis, and kick back and relax at Paris Plage.
