Home to landscapes so gorgeous any painter would envy, a capital city that claims the title of the most romantic in the world, and a sunny coast caressed by the glistening waters of the Mediterranean Sea, France is one of the best European destinations for a honeymoon like no other. Starting in charming Paris with its fairytale-like riverside walks and quaint cafés, your French honeymoon continues in Avignon and the heart of the dreamy Provence region. Before you kiss France goodbye, laze in the sun along the famed French Riviera, taking a vow to come back to this country of passion and love before too long. One of our team members in Paris will be available to you leading up to and during your trip to answer any questions and arrange local services.

Paris is situated in the northern part of France. The city sprawls over both banks of the Seine River and on two islands: the Îles Saint Louis and the larger Île de la Cité. The historical city center is built around the Seine, and it has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1991. For a glimpse into the oldest part of Paris, take a stroll along the Seine and around the 1st and 4th districts to admire iconic landmarks, such as the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris or the Louvre Museum, among others. But leave some space and time for the rest of the city's districts, as each of Paris' 20 arrondissements possesses incredible treasures to discover.

Whether inspired by Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris or not, your trip to Paris would never be complete without a night out in the glittering City of Light. From sipping on exquisite wine at a low-key bar to dancing the night away in a trendy club, Paris nightlife has it all. One of the things not to miss in Paris at night is a cabaret show. A tradition that dates back to the late 19th century, cabaret shows are an integral part of Parisian culture, and you can enjoy them in places like Moulin Rouge and Lido de Paris. For a more down-to-earth experience among locals, head to the neighborhood of Bastille, which turns into the liveliest party scene when the night falls in Paris.

Getting to Know Paris, One Museum at a Time

Suggestion to explore on your own

With a plethora of superb art collections, some of the world's most recognizable masterpieces, and several museums where rich history and impressive architecture reign, it's no wonder that Paris is often called the City of Art. From the most-visited museum in the world, the Louvre, to museums dedicated to famous artists like Picasso and Rodin, to collections showcasing the life and work of fashion icons, such as Yves Saint Laurent, Paris has it all. Apart from the precious exhibits, it often happens that the museum buildings themselves are sights to behold for their architecture alone. The Beaux-Arts railway station that houses the exquisite Musée d'Orsay and the high-tech structure of Centre Pompidou are only two of the French capital's architectural wonders. You'll find more details of the many museums you could visit in your Guest Page, once your trip is booked.
