This is a city that deserves to be visited in each season. Everything about the City of Light is unique and cannot be compared to anything else. Book a room at one of the famous luxury hotels and let yourself be pampered. You can try Four Seasons Hotel George V, a landmark between the hotels in Paris. If you're looking for something more affordable, try Hôtel Louvre Bons Enfants or Victoria Palace, with a central, but quiet location.

From the first hours of the morning you can hit the major monuments like Arc de Triomphe, do some window shopping on Champs Elysee, see the Basilique du Sacré-Cœur right in the heart of the city.
