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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Chapelle Notre Dame de la Medaille Miraculeuse and Atelier des Lumieres. Do some cultural sightseeing at Eiffel Tower and Musee Rodin. There's much more to do: make a trip to Champs-Elysees, get to know the fascinating history of Île de la Cité, steep yourself in history at Arc de Triomphe, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Saint Germain des Pres Quarter.

The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Gravensteen and The Princely Beguinage Ten Wijngaarde. Grand Place and Saint Bavo's Cathedral are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Brussels: Graslei and Korenlei (in Ghent), Bruges (Torture Museum Oude Steen & Cathedrale Saint Sauveur de Bruges) and Antwerp (Red Star Line Museum, Museum Plantin-Moretus, &more). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Atomium, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), and take an in-depth tour of Museum of the City of Brussels (Musee de la Ville de Bruxelles).

For other places to visit, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Brussels online tour planner.
