The First Trip: A Four Day Paris Itinerary

Bienvenue à Paris!(!!!). This is your four-day Paris itinerary, de luxe. Paris is one of the world’s best destinations. It is also one of its busiest, and while definitely not one of its biggest, it can be the most overwhelming. Like, it’s Paris!! How can you possibly decide what to see and what not to see?

This Week’s Free Map: Montmartre

This week’s free map is Montmartre! The most romantic neighborhood in Paris, especially if your romance is with hills. To download the map, shown below, just click here.
