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.
Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe will appeal to history buffs. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Centre National d'Art et de Culture George Pompidou and The Paris Catacombs. When in Paris, make a side trip to see Palace of Versailles in Versailles, approximately 48 minutes away. The adventure continues: shop like a local with Champs-Elysees, step into the grandiose world of The Trianons & The Hamlet, admire the masterpieces at Louvre Museum, and wander the streets of Saint Germain des Pres Quarter.
