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.
Step off the beaten path and head to The Army Museum and Latin Quarter. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Eiffel Tower and Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre. Step out of Paris with an excursion to Basilica Cathedral of Saint-Denis in Saint-Denis--about 32 minutes away. There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Arc de Triomphe, take a stroll through Île de la Cité, pause for some photo ops at Pantheon, and explore the world behind art at Louvre Museum.

To find photos, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Paris trip itinerary planner.
