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.
Take a break from Paris with a short trip to Palace of Versailles in Versailles, about 48 minutes away. There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Louvre Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, shop like a local with Champs-Elysees, and admire the natural beauty at Luxembourg Gardens.
