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.
Philippe-Chatrier Court and Chateau de St-Germain will appeal to history buffs. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Chateau de Malmaison and Albert Kahn Musee et Jardins. Change things up with a short trip to Chateau de Monte Cristo - Alexandre Dumas' House in Le Port-Marly (about 38 minutes away). Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at Musee Cernuschi, see the interesting displays at Musee du Parfum - Fragonard, take a stroll through 1st Arrondissement, and don't miss a visit to Église Saint-Étienne-du-Mont.
