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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Champs-Elysees and Le Marais. Step out of the city life by going to Scuba & Snorkeling and Ile Saint-Louis. Explore Paris' surroundings by going to Palace of Versailles (in Versailles) and Walt Disney Studios Park (in Marne-la-Vallee). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Montmartre, examine the collection at Musee de l'Orangerie, explore the different monuments and memorials at Cemiterio de Pere-Lachaise, and stroll through Paris Plage.
