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.

There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Eiffel Tower, take a stroll through Latin Quarter, see the interesting displays at Fondation Louis Vuitton, and explore the world behind art at Musee Marmottan Monet.
