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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Île de la Cité and Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre. Montmartre and Champs-Elysees will appeal to history buffs. Go for a jaunt from Paris to Marne-la-Vallee to see Disneyland Paris about 40 minutes away. There's lots more to do: appreciate the history behind Arc de Triomphe, contemplate the long history of Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris, see the interesting displays at Musee Rodin, and wander the streets of Le Marais.

Renowned for its vast royal palace and gardens built by King Louis XIV, Versailles is also one of the wealthiest suburbs of Paris and home to a new cultural notability, such as a thriving artistic and musical scene.
Get a sense of the local culture at Palace of Versailles and Temple de l'Amour. Visiting L'Eure de l'Ulm and Le Bois des Aigles will get you outdoors.

There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of The Trianons & The Hamlet, get to know the fascinating history of Grand Canal, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chartres Cathedral, and get outside with Atelier galerie du bord de Seine.
