Paris

— 22 nights

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.
Popular historic sites such as Chapelle Notre Dame de la Medaille Miraculeuse and The Trianons & The Hamlet are in your itinerary. Musee De Cluny and Aisne Marne American Cemetery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Paris: Chartres Cathedral (in Chartres), Réunion des Musées Nationaux et Grand Palais (in Rueil-Malmaison) and Fontainebleau (Chateau de Fontainebleau & Fontainebleau Forest (Foret de Fontainebleau)). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of La Grange aux Dimes, step into the grandiose world of Chateau de Gaillon, get to know the fascinating history of Left Bank (Rive Gauche), and stroll the grounds of Aisne-Marne Memorial & Cemetery.
