Paris is "The city of lights"
A stroll along the Champs Elysées is a delight for the senses. Famous designer names and chic boutiques beckon shoppers inside, and colorful sidewalk cafes entice one to enjoy a casual meal, engage in delightful conversation or simply linger over coffee. The imposing Arc d'Triomphe provides an impressive backdrop for a photograph as well as an exclusive view of the city.
One of the most recognizable landmarks on earth is the famous Eiffel Tower on the Left Bank of the River Seine. Built for the Paris Exhibition in 1889, it is the perfect spot to begin a sightseeing cruise for a close-up view of some of the most celebrated sites in Paris, including the inspiring Notre Dame Cathedral.
The list of popular places to see in Paris is endless: the Louvre Museum, the Opera House, the Grand Palais and the Petit Palais, Sacre Coeur, the magnificent Tuilerries gardens and numerous bridges. Nightlife is legendary, from the famed Moulin Rouge and the Lido to L’etoile and lesser known clubs in Mont Martre.
France, land of the arts and wine
A short drive from the beautiful capital city is the charming French village of Giverny, home of Impressionist artist Claude Monet for 43 years. Situated in the gateway to Normandy, Giverny is a stepping stone into Monet’s paintings, as his famous footbridges and gardens come to life.
A vacation in Paris is not complete without a side trip to the palaces of Versailles, on the outskirts of the city. The nearby Loire Valley is famous for its stunning scenery and numerous chateaux as well as for its wines.
For all that the “City of Lights” can offer, visitors will agree that our cheap flights to France are the start of a lifelong “love affair”.
