City of Light

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 Île de la Cité and Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte. Popular historic sites such as Eiffel Tower and The Paris Catacombs are in your itinerary. There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Musee d'Orsay, get a taste of the local shopping with Champs-Elysees, examine the collection at Atelier des Lumieres, and ponder the world of politics at Hotel de Ville.

For more things to do, ratings, and more tourist information, use the Paris planning tool.
