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.
Musee Jardin Bourdelle and Musee de la Marechalerie will appeal to museum buffs. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Cimetiere Militaire Allemand de Belleau and Eglise Saint -Agnes. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Paris: Aisne-Marne Memorial & Cemetery (in Belleau), Basilique de Saint-Mathurin (in Larchant) and Chateau de Fontainebleau (in Fontainebleau). The adventure continues: get a taste of the local shopping with Galleria Continua, step off the mainland to explore Ile Saint-Louis, and let your taste buds guide you at Visit the Hidden Paris.
