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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Musee Marmottan Monet and Musee National des Arts Asiatiques - Guimet. Get a sense of the local culture at Eiffel Tower and Musee du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac. There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Musee d'Orsay, pause for some photo ops at Arc de Triomphe, examine the collection at Musee des Arts Forains, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Pantheon.
