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 Chateau de Fontainebleau 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: Champagne Alain Mercier et Fils (in Passy-sur-Marne), Chartres Cathedral (in Chartres) and Champagne Tarlant (in Oeuilly). There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of The Trianons & The Hamlet, examine the collection at Musee du Verre, get engrossed in the history at Memorial de Dormans 14-18, and steep yourself in history at La Grange aux Dimes.

To see traveler tips, ratings, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Paris tour builder website.
