Ile-de-France travel guide

Architectural Buildings · Historic Sites · Art Museums
Île-de-France offers a wealth of treasures from its Parisian urban culture and natural frontiers to its romantic river walks along artistic landscapes that continue to inspire painters. The heartland of the country is like a miniature version of France as a whole, offering a sample of everything you've come to expect in the country: charming villages, museums, cathedrals, châteaux, parks, forests, river lands, and world-class shopping and restaurants, of course. Many locals still refer to the region as Région Parisienne or RP, because it's the most populated and affluent metropolitan area of the country. Although this region is small, it has borne witness to great historical battles, canvasses painted by old masters, and centuries of royalty, as evidenced by its wealth of attractions. Your vacation in the economic, religious, and political hub of France brings you up close and personal with diverse historical monuments, the pink turrets of Disney's castle, and the three surrounding rivers: the Seine, the Marne and the Oise.
