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.

You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Cimetiere Militaire Allemand de Belleau and Aisne-Marne Memorial & Cemetery. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Paris: Basilique de Saint-Mathurin (in Larchant), Musee de la Marechalerie (in Misy-sur-Yonne) and Chateau de Fontainebleau (in Fontainebleau). And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Saint -Agnes, head off the coast to Ile Saint-Louis, and let your taste buds guide you at Visit the Hidden Paris.
