The City of Light is one of the world's most amazing, gorgeous and romantic cities in the world, and regardless of how many times you've visited, the grandeur of Paris will seduce and inspire you with its unparalleled cuisine, fascinating history, stylish shopping - and its joie de vivre! From the upper deck of the luxury Bustronome to the calm waters of the Seine for a dinner cruise; from the best wine bar in Paris to the most historic district in Paris!

Paris sits right on your doorstep when you stay at the luxury boutique Edouard 7 hotel in the heart of Paris, which combines classic charm with modern amenities in a landmark location. Built in 1877 in pure Haussmanian style, Hotel Edouard 7 offers a prestigious couture collection, from furnishings to amenities, rooms that are modern and inviting with exceptional features such as laminate-wood floors, luxury bath amenities, flat screen TVs and so much more. The hotel is ideally located near iconic Paris attractions including Paris Opéra Garnier, the Palais - Royal Gardens and Edouard 7 Theatre. Additionally, the avenues surrounding this hotel on the Avenue de l'Opéra offer some of the most prominent boutiques, including the world-renowned Galerie Lafayette & Printemps department stores.

Get a taste for old and new on your guided walking tour of Le Marais, where the Paris of yesteryear blends with today's culture and fashion. Known as one of the most historic and hip neighborhoods in Paris, it has no shortage of narrow medieval streets, emerging designer's boutiques and quirky restaurants, and it contains numerous architecturally important buildings. The city's thriving LGBT, Chinese and Jewish communities all squeeze into Le Marais' narrow medieval lanes.

You can't come to Paris without indulging in two of France's finest products - wine and cheese! Instead of going to yet another restaurant, a sommelier will expertly guide you through a wonderful tasting experience at O'Chateau, which is a great opportunity to get an education about France's famous wine and cheese.
