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.
