Take your time experiencing the best of Paris and Benelux during two weeks you will always remember with fondness. This 14-day itinerary to four different countries shows you around the charms of Paris, Luxembourg City, Brussels, Bruges, and Amsterdam. Start your journey in Paris, the indisputably prettiest capital in Europe, and try not to fall instantly in love with the City of Light during your walks along the utterly romantic Seine River. Your next stop is the lesser-known Luxembourg City, a tiny yet picture-perfect capital you can easily explore in a day. Then, travel to the very core of the European Union, multicultural Brussels with its splendid architecture and quirky attractions, before continuing your Belgian adventure with a trip to dreamy Bruges, one of the world's most picturesque towns. End your vacation with style in vibrant Amsterdam, the charming Venice of the North, with its countless winding canals and cozy cafés. One of our team members in the region will be available to you leading up to and during your trip to answer any questions and arrange local services. You will receive access to your Guest Page, which includes all the necessary information on the best these destinations have to offer, including things to see and do and other insider tips, from restaurant recommendations to tipping advice.

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.
