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.
Take a break from the city and head to Seine River and L'Orangerie. Change things up with these side-trips from Paris: L'Arche Feline (in Vascoeuil), Rouen (Square Verdrel & Roumare Forest) and Avion Normandie - L'Eure de l'Ulm (in Saint-Aquilin-de-Pacy). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Louvre Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, take a stroll through Île de la Cité, and visit Montmartre.
