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.

There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Musee d'Orsay, wander the streets of Latin Quarter, don't miss a visit to Le Trocadero et son esplanade, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Ile Saint-Louis.
