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 Aisne Marne American Cemetery are in your itinerary. Musee De Cluny and Left Bank (Rive Gauche) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Paris: Fontainebleau (Chateau de Fontainebleau & Fontainebleau Forest (Foret de Fontainebleau)), Réunion des Musées Nationaux et Grand Palais (in Rueil-Malmaison) and Chartres Cathedral (in Chartres). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of La Grange aux Dimes, see the interesting displays at Musee du Verre, step into the grandiose world of Chateau de Gaillon, and identify plant and animal life at Arboretum des Grandes Bruyères.
