Paris - The City of Light


Paris the City of Light on the river Seine is the capital and largest city in France. It is also the city of romance. Paris is without doubt the leading center of fashion, culture and gastronomy. Paris hosts a rich array of museums, art galleries, and nightlife and is the most visited city in the world.

There is ample opportunity for shopping or just people-watching, especially from the vantage point of many atmospheric cafes. From sunrise strolls along the Seine or on the Champs-Elysées and it's other grand boulevards. Paris's beauty is still overwhelming, especially at night, when it truly is the City of Light.

The best time to visit is in the spring. Allow at least 3 or 4 days to see the main attractions. There is so much to see and do you could spend weeks there. Public transportation, especially the underground Paris Metro / RER, makes it easy to get around to many attractions and neighborhoods. If you have kids the Euro Disney is just a short Metro ride away.

If you have the time then a day trip to Versailles the stunning palace of Louis XIV, the Sun King or a short trip to Notre-Dame de Chartres a magnificent medieval
Cathedral with some of the oldest and most beautiful stained glass in the world.
