Escorted Rail Tours to Paris
The romantic capital of France
The French capital and one of Europe's - if not the world's -
most instantly recognisable and iconic cities. Its global impact on
art, fashion, entertainment, media and education cannot be
underestimated; Paris truly offers something for everyone. Its
origins date back to 52BC, when the Romans conquered a Gallic
fortress called Lutetia Parisiorum. They established a colony which
later became the capital of the Frankish Empire - and then emerged
in the 10th century as the centre of the new French Kingdom.
There are so many famous landmarks of the Paris skyline that
you're unlikely to take them all in, but there are some places you
really should take the time to see. The vast majority of landmarks
line the River Seine, or are a stone's throw away. Obviously the
Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral are along here, as well as
the Louvre with its distinctive glass pyramids.
