Destination Highlights

Considered one of the most attractive cities, Paris is also admired as a place of education and intellect. One of the symbols of Paris is the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, which ends at the commemorative monument, the Arc de Triomphe. Discover over 26 centuries of collected art in the Louvre Museum, including Leonardo da Vinci’s painting of the Mona Lisa, treasures of French kings and Egyptian antiques. Wander around the Tuileries Gardens to view lovely fountains and centuries of sculptures from a variety of artists, among the flowers and landscaped greenery. Walk across the steel footbridge, Pont des Arts, for the perfect postcard photo to share with friends and family. For a chance to take in all the iconic sights of Paris, including the Eiffel Tower, cruise through the heart of the city along the River Seine.

Travel to Nice, where the culture and climate has earned its long history of relaxation and sunshine. Let the spirit of Old Nice carry away all cares, among the colorful architecture and charming squares. While there, explore the market stalls at Cours Saleya, trying local chocolates or picking up a unique souvenir. Learn how far back in time the stories of Nice can go on a visit to the ruins of Roman baths, when the city went by another name and the timeline was not yet measured with the B.C. and A.D. system.

Step back in time on a trip to Rome, a core of cultural history for multiple religious traditions. See the Colosseum, an amphitheater built to hold 50,000 spectators to watch gladiator combat. View the setting of public meetings and ceremonies at Forum Romanum. Learn about the legend of Romulus and Remus that made Palatine Hill a point of interest for aristocrats in Ancient Rome. Climb the Spanish Steps, perhaps catching a glimpse of the ghost of the poet, John Keats, near the base of the steps. Explore the glory of Vatican City, taking in the masterpieces of Michelangelo, one crowning the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and more in the various Vatican Museums. Notice how dramatically things can change at St. Peter’s Basilica, starting as a place where Christians were part of the entertainment in Nero’s games and now dedicated to the sanctity of Christianity. Before departing, be sure to toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain, as it is widely believed that doing so ensures a return trip to Rome.
