In an ageless city, you can sample the best cuisine in France, take a trip on the Bateaux Mouche and visit the cathedrals of Sacré Coeur and Notre Dame. The Louvre museum and the Musee D’Orsay between them house some of the world’s finest works of art, and the enduring appeal of the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe are not to be resisted. The city remains culturally formidable, from the ancient Sorbonne to the vibrant Left Bank.
