Paris
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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Chateau de Chantilly and Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte. For shopping fun, head to Champs-Elysees or Le Marais. Explore Paris' surroundings by going to Beauvais (Cathedrale Saint-Pierre & Moulin-Musee de la Brosserie), The Hall of Mirrors (in Versailles) and Chateau de Brie-Comte-Robert (in Brie-Comte-Robert). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Trocadero, explore the historical opulence of Chateau of Vincennes, appreciate the extensive heritage of Montmartre, and see the interesting displays at Musee Nissim de Camondo.
