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.
Relax by the water at Paris Plage and Plage du Butin. Take a break from the city and head to Île de la Cité and Scuba & Snorkeling. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Paris: Saint Catherine's Catholic Church (in Honfleur), Palace of Versailles (in Versailles) and Caresse de Tigre (in La Mailleraye-sur-Seine). There's lots more to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Le Marais, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, get to know the fascinating history of Champs-Elysees, and contemplate the long history of Eiffel Tower.

Plan my Paris trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
