Paris

— 6 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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Louvre Museum and Musee d'Orsay. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte and Chapelle Notre Dame de la Medaille Miraculeuse. Venture out of the city with trips to Musee Stephane Mallarme (in Vulaines sur Seine) and Collegiale Saint Martin (in Champeaux). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Eiffel Tower, admire the masterpieces at Atelier des Lumieres, wander the streets of Latin Quarter, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Île de la Cité.
