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, steep yourself in history at Arc de Triomphe, stroll around Luxembourg Gardens, and get to know the fascinating history of Montmartre.
