Paris — 4 nights

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.
Eiffel Tower and Musee d'Orsay are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Petit Palais and Latin Quarter. When in Paris, make a side trip to see Basilica Cathedral of Saint-Denis in Saint-Denis, approximately Saint-Denis away. There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at Louvre Museum, admire the natural beauty at Jardin des Tuileries, examine the collection at National Museum of Natural History, and pause for some photo ops at Pantheon.

Nantes — 5 nights

Venice of the West

Regarded as an art and history city, Nantes is called the Venice of the West.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Cathedrale de Saint-Pierre et Saint-Paul and Chateau des Ducs de Bretagne. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Cite Medievale de Guerande and Chateau de Tiffauges. Get out of town with these interesting Nantes side-trips: La Rochelle (Boat Tours & Water Sports & Musee Le Bunker de La Rochelle), Legendia Parc (in Frossay) and Parc Animalier et Botanique de Branfere (in Le Guerno). There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Jardin des Plantes, wander the streets of Passage Pommeraye, and visit Village de Trentemoult.
