Paris

— 8 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.
Attractions like Louvre Museum and Musee d'Orsay make great kid-friendly stops. Get out of town with these interesting Paris side-trips: Disneyland Paris (in Marne-la-Vallee) and Palace of Versailles (in Versailles). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Le Marais, admire the landmark architecture of Centre National d'Art et de Culture George Pompidou, shop like a local with Champs-Elysees, and walk around Luxembourg Gardens.

Venice of the West

Regarded as an art and history city, Nantes is called the Venice of the West.
Bring the kids along to Aquarium La Rochelle and Place Graslin.

Next up on the itinerary: tee off at Golf de l'Ile d'Or, take in nature's colorful creations at Jardin Ile de Versailles, explore the historical opulence of Chateau des Ducs de Bretagne, and admire the local landmark of Le Miroir d'Eau.
