Paris

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.
Escape the urban bustle at Seine River and Île de la Cité. Change things up with these side-trips from Paris: Rouen (Square Verdrel & Roumare Forest), Caresse de Tigre (in La Mailleraye-sur-Seine) and Poses (Bateau Guillaume le Conquerant & Atelier galerie du bord de Seine). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Louvre Museum, take a stroll through Montmartre, admire the striking features of Palace of Versailles, and walk around Luxembourg Gardens.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Paris road trip site.
