France is luxurious, edgy, and classic. These come together in the capital, Paris, and are expressed through fashion, gastronomy, and art. While you could spend weeks in Paris and still not experience everything, we picked out a few highlights we believe are essential to your first visit if you only have 24 hours in Paris.

We chose this Paris Explorer with Trafalgar trip because we wanted a leisurely paced trip that captures all that Paris has to offer and then some. We were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived our tour director, Jonathan, made sure we were well taken care of while also making sure we experienced the true Parisian lifestyle.

My Paris Explorer with Trafalgar vacation this year concentrated on Paris – the City of Light and Love. I chose this particular tour because although I had previously visited Paris in the past, it was always too short, and was only a part of an expanded itinerary. Like being offered only a small bite of a Chocolate Eclair; or a sip of fine French Wine – I knew it had not been enough, and I wanted more.
Snapping pictures in front of places you’ve been is one of the best ways to remember your journey. Everyone loves to comb through pictures and share their best shots with their friends and family, to inspire them to travel as well. Research shows that more than half of travelers plan their next destination based on pictures they have seen. So, what places are being snapped the most? Here are the most photographed landmarks around the world.

I was fortunate enough to partake in Rendezvous On The Seine With Tauck River Cruise. It was an experience that I will never forget.
It started with three nights in Paris, at the Hotel Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel, and as the name might indicate, it is next to the Eiffel Tower. We came in a day earlier than the itinerary called for, to get use to the time change. We ate and people watched at one of the several great cafes in the area after walking along the Seine, which is only a couple of blocks from the hotel. The weather was cool with periods of light rain, but nothing that kept us from getting out. Tip: take water proof shoes, a rain coat, and a travel umbrella when you travel to northern France in the spring.
