Start off your visit on the 21st (Wed): take a stroll through Île de la Cité, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chapelle Notre Dame de la Medaille Miraculeuse, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, examine the collection at Musee Nissim de Camondo, then shop like a local with Champs-Elysees, and finally contemplate the long history of Eiffel Tower. On your second day here, take a stroll through Montmartre, then admire the landmark architecture of Arc de Triomphe, and then head off the coast to Ile Saint-Louis.

Immerse yourself in a snow-capped mountain wonderland in Switzerland's serene Alpine setting. See the world-renowned Matterhorn, Switzerland's second-highest mountain at 4,478 m (14,962 ft) tall, or zoom down the mountains on toboggan, ski, or snowboard. In the warmer seasons hike around the rolling green hillsides covered with pine trees and picturesque aqua blue lakes. Luxurious cities dotted with cozy wooden chalets and colorful flowerbeds balance quaintness with first-class cultural offerings.
