Paris — 5 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.
Louvre Museum and Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore hidden gems such as Petit Palais and Latin Quarter. Step out of Paris with an excursion to Parc des Felins in Lumigny-Nesles-Ormeaux--about 52 minutes away. There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Musee d'Orsay, pause for some serene contemplation at Chapelle Notre Dame de la Medaille Miraculeuse, don't miss a visit to Hotel de Ville, and take a stroll through Île de la Cité.
