Paris — 6 nights

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: admire the striking features of Louvre Museum, explore the different monuments and memorials at The Paris Catacombs, appreciate the history behind Arc de Triomphe, and get to know the fascinating history of Montmartre.
