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.

Here are some ideas for day two: get the lay of the land with Walking tours, stroll the grounds of Pere-Lachaise Cemetery, then contemplate the waterfront views at Seine River, and finally get a sense of history and politics at Hotel de Ville.
