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.
Step out of the city life by going to Île de la Cité and Seine River. Head to Champs-Elysees and Le Maraisfor plenty of shopping.
