Paris - Parisian Atmosphere
Paris is in a class all of its own, endowed with quintessential cafes, chic and historic bookshops, and Bohemian charm. Students represent the latest styles, taking fashionable inspiration from the Luxembourg Gardens. The historic architecture rises above the tree-shaded walkways lining the wide boulevards. The labyrinthine cobblestone streets of the Latin Quarter eventually open up to a view of the Seine River. Your private transfer greets you at Charles de Gaulle International Airport upon your arrival and escorts you into the heart of the city.
Art and inspiration emanate from the Galerie Xippas in the Marais district to the pearl-white façade of the Sacre Coeur crowning the hill of Montmartre. The church has a mixture of Romanesque and Byzantine style. Its nickname, “Wedding Cake,” is fitting due to the structural layers and three distinctive domes. Over 300 steps lead from the base of the hillside to the foot of the church. The panoramic view of Paris’s rooftops from the Basilica terrace provides the perfect picture of the unforgettable city.
