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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Musee Rodin. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte and Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Reims. Do some cultural sightseeing at Louvre Museum and Eiffel Tower. Venture out of the city with trips to Reims (Cimetiere du Nord & Basilique Saint-Remi). There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at Musee d'Orsay, don't miss a visit to Le Trocadero et son esplanade, admire the landmark architecture of Arc de Triomphe, and pause for some serene contemplation at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre.
