For centuries Italy has drawn foreign visitors - mostly for its architectural, artistic, and scenic splendors. Italy can truly be all things to all people. From the passion and excitement of noisy urban crowds to the quiet, rural idyll where the traditional life can be experienced. Italy's great cities are replete with rich attractions and culture alongside some of the most pristine beaches and spectacular mountains in the world.
France remains one of the worlds most talked-about and written-about destinations. Whether the romance of Paris sweeps you off your feet or you fall gently for the relaxed life of Provence, France is a place for lovers, and will leave you spellbound. Paris is undoubtedly one of the world's great cities, with enough monuments, museums, restaurants, theatres and shows to last a lifetime. The northern provinces of Normandy and Brittany are steeped in history while the Loire Valley is world famous for its châteaux. And there is more to explore.
Paris is regarded as one of the most dynamic cities in Europe, and for good reason: the city assaults the senses; demanding to be seen, heard, touched, tasted, and smelled. Gaze at impressive monuments and savor its gourmet cheeses, chocolates, wines, and seafood. Paris is relatively small as capitals go, with many of its major sights and museums within walking distance of each other. A world of discovery awaits in every hidden corner and at all the famous sites, there is so much to explore. Visit the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, Jardin des Tuileries, Latin Quarter, Avenue des Champs Elysees, Musee d'Orsay, Place de la Concorde, Arc de Triomphe and so much more!
Lyon is the third-largest city in France offering an imposing history shining through its picturesque streets and monuments from all ages. Parks, skyscrapers and sidewalk cafes, a great transport system, and a nightlife fueled by student energy invigorate Lyon. It has the finest food in France and you will have the chance to discover the "Châteaux" and taste the unequaled wine! There`s the Ancient Theatre dating back to the Roman Empire, the medieval Vieux Lyon quarter, the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière from the 18th century but also the Opéra Nouvel built just a bit more than a couple of decades ago. And, dotted here and there, the mysterious Traboules, that adds a new dimension to the way you explore a city. Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights Must See`s: Musée des Beaux Arts, Vieux Lyon, Presqu`ile District, Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière, Parc de la Tête d`Or, Traboules, Ancient Theater of Fourvière, Musée Gadagne, Les Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse, and so much more!
Despite its 20th-century history as Italy`s industrial center, Turin (Torino) is a wealthy and graceful Italian city, and a center for fashion and arts. Long before it was the home of Fiat and Lancia, Turin was the seat of the powerful Savoy dynasty, and they were determined to make their capital city the rival of Paris and Vienna. Their palaces are its centerpiece, and the streetscape is the legacy of 17th-century Baroque architects Guarino Guarini and Filippo Juvarra. It`s often said that Turin is the most French city in Italy or the most Italian city in France, the reason partly historical and partly architectural.
