Paris, France

— 7 nights

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.
Take a break from the city and head to Île de la Cité and Ile Saint-Louis. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Eiffel Tower and Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris. When in Paris, make a side trip to see Palace of Versailles in Versailles, approximately Versailles away. There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Louvre Museum, get a taste of the local shopping with Champs-Elysees, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, and see the interesting displays at Musee Rodin.
