When it comes to Paris, words fail. No description or superlative comes close to capturing the magic of the inimitable "City of Lights." It's not just the culture... or the history... or the people, architecture of food. It's all those things-plus, so much more. Whether it's day, night, winter, summer, spring, or autumn, in Paris, the very air feels enchanted. Cerianly, few places have as many recognizable icons: Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Louvre and Notre Dame, which is celebrating its 850th anniversary of the cathedral. Whether you're shopping along the Champs-Elysees, cruising down the River Seine, taking in a cabaret show at the historic Moulin Rouge, strolling through the artists village of Montmartre, or simply basking in the city's je ne sais quoi at a sidewalk cafe, Paris will make a lasting impression on you.
