Paris is the undisputed epicenter of French culture, and perhaps the most romantic city in the world. The City of Light hosts many of Europe’s most iconic sights, including the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Arc de Triomphe, and the tree-lined Champs-Elysées. Museums here are legendary and showcase centuries of art and history. Works by Monet, Picasso, Renoir, and van Gogh can be found on display throughout the city, and each stunning collection is just as worthy of a visit as the massive Louvre.

Beyond the famous icons in the city, head to the sprawling palace of Versailles to glimpse the bygone decadence of the French royalty both inside its gilded halls, and outside on the manicured lawns. The region is always abuzz with festivals celebrating music, film, fashion, and more cultural pieces that make up the whole inviting picture of France.
