Fresh baguettes on the banks of the Seine, a romantic stroll through the Jardin du Luxembourg and dinner overlooking that iconic symbol of Paris, the Tour Eiffel. Intellectuals have been coming to Paris since medieval times, artists come here for inspiration, chefs come for a culinary tradition, designers for Haute Couture, and now you will come to the City of Light because it is home. Spend an entire day just trying to explore the nooks and crannies of the Louvre, and your kids will love the brightly colored Centre Pompidou. Take a boat ride through the heart of the city on a Bateau Mouche or spend an afternoon at the Jardin des Enfants des Halles, a park reserved just for kids. Whether you make it here for the flowers along the Champs Elysees in the springtime, bundle up under a freshly fallen snow or cool off along the waterfront at the Canal St-Martin, there is no place quite like Paris.
