What’s to say about Paris? The Romantic Capital of Europe has retained its charms despite the commercial pressures which have transformed many of its European neighbours. Paris is an intoxicating mix of museums, galleries, cafes and restaurants, all set on the stately banks of the Seine and presiding on Paris’ gorgeous boulevards. Car hire in Paris is available if you want a break from the city. There'’s charming countryside within a day’s driving distance if you opt for hiring a car in Paris. Monet’s Garden in Giverny, and the Vigny area are popular to the North, with the Loire Valley in the South.
