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.
Kick off your visit on the 27th (Wed): make a trip to Place de la Concorde, make a trip to Pont Alexandre III, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, and finally take in nature's colorful creations at Fondation Claude Monet. Here are some ideas for day two: pause for some photo ops at Pantheon, then don't miss a visit to Pere-Lachaise Cemetery, then don't miss a visit to Place de la Bastille, and finally explore the activities along Seine River.
