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.
Louvre Museum has been added to your itinerary. On the 9th (Mon), take in the architecture and atmosphere at Sainte-Chapelle, make a trip to Champs-Elysees, and then admire the landmark architecture of Louvre Museum. Here are some ideas for day two: step off the mainland to explore Île de la Cité, then contemplate the long history of Eiffel Tower, then pause for some photo ops at Arc de Triomphe, and finally admire the masterpieces at Musee d'Orsay.

A physical and cultural bridge between Europe and Asia, the transcontinental city of Istanbul serves as a living reminder of the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires.
