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 are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step off the beaten path and head to The Army Museum and Chateau de Chantilly. Venture out of the city with trips to Lochnagar Crater (in Ovillers-la-Boisselle), Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte (in Maincy) and Adelaide Cemetery (in Villers-Bretonneux). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Musee Nissim de Camondo, admire the masterpieces at Petit Palais, shop like a local with Champs-Elysees, and admire the striking features of Louvre Museum.
