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.
Shop till you drop at Saint Germain des Pres Quarter and Champs-Elysees. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to The Army Museum and Musee Marmottan Monet. Venture out of the city with trips to Prieure de Longpre (in Haramont), Amiens (Cathedrale Notre-Dame d'Amiens & Les Hortillonnages d'Amiens) and Cathedrale Saint-Pierre (in Beauvais). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Eiffel Tower, learn about winemaking at Moet et Chandon, wander the streets of Latin Quarter, and examine the collection at Musee Somme 1916.
