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.
Attractions like Louvre Museum and Petit Palais make great kid-friendly stops. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte and Latin Quarter. Step out of Paris with an excursion to Evasion Canine in Fontainebleau--about 1h 5 min away. There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at Musee d'Orsay, pause for some photo ops at Arc de Triomphe, make a trip to Eiffel Tower, and take a stroll through Île de la Cité.
