Paris, France

1 2 3 4

Whether you're strolling along the Seine or soaking up city life from a sidewalk cafe, you'll see why Paris is synonymous with the word style. From culinary delights to cultural sights, every one of your senses will be tempted. Famed throughout the world for beauty and variety, the monuments, towers, churches, palaces, archways, bridges and fountains will transport you back in time.

A sense of romance along the Pont Neuf, a shiver in the catacombs or an exotic mood at the Mosque: Paris is a mix of atmospheres and cultures. From the must-see to the more unusual, all of these relate two thousand years of the capital's history. An essential part of your stay, a cruise along the Seine is not to be missed! As you glide along the water you'll find yourself face to face with splendid museums. Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Monet, Rodin, Delacroix and Picasso: all these icons of the art world are represented as are antiquities from the four corners of the world.

When people think Paris, they think fashion. Sophisticated or baroque, the window displays of the superb boutiques are a celebration of beauty, a fantasy of fabulous fabrics, delicate scents and sparkling jewels. Located on the outskirts of Paris, theme parks, zoos and a safari park await. You will need at least a full day to appreciate their full worth. Of course, you can't miss the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Versailles and the Louvre, but be sure to spend a quiet moment in the Jardin de Tuileries and savor an éclair from a patisserie or a glass of Beaujolais in a romantic bistro.
