Art De Vivre
Paris is the landmark city of France, falling in love and romancing. The iconic Eiffel Tower and buzzing cafe amid elegant parks overflowing with graceful sculptures, ponds, and fountains remind us of the heart of France. Also, we can feel the breath of the great artists Renoir, Rodin, Picasso, Monet, Manet, Dali, and Van Gogh in Paris. The incomparable Musee du Louvre is the ideal starting point. Jardin du Luxembourg is a Parisian favorite, or join savvy flaneurs waterside along the Seine or hipster Canal St-Martin.
