Paris

— 7 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 Eiffel Tower and Louvre Museum. Attractions like Musee d'Orsay and Arc de Triomphe make great kid-friendly stops. Get out of town with these interesting Paris side-trips: Palace of Versailles (in Versailles), Collegiale Notre Dame (in Vernon) and Giverny (Musee des impressionnismes & Fondation Claude Monet). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, shop like a local with Champs-Elysees, walk around Luxembourg Gardens, and see the interesting displays at Musee Rodin.
