Paris — 6 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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Louvre Museum and Montmartre. When in Paris, make a side trip to see Palace of Versailles in Versailles, approximately Versailles away. There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Arc de Triomphe, steep yourself in history at Sainte-Chapelle, stroll through Île de la Cité, and get a taste of the local shopping with Champs-Elysees.
