Gateway to the City of Light

The first thing you will notice as you approach Rouen is the Cathedral of Notre Dame, towering high above the city, its 490-foot cast-iron spire the tallest in France. Get lost in the old town where half-timbered houses line a labyrinth of lanes, and stop for a moment at the Rehabilitation Cross, marking the spot where in 1431 Joan of Arc was consigned to the flames.

Paris, City of Light, arbiter of fashion, food and wine, and radiating romance, is within easy reach. Stroll along the Champs Elysées, the most beautiful avenue in the world, take in the view from the Eiffel Tower, or immerse yourself in that nirvana for art lovers - the Louvre.

Dominating the Paris skyline, the mythical and audacious Eiffel Tower is the symbol of the City of Light. Built for the 1889 World Exposition, it took over 12,000 individually designed pieces of iron and seven million nails to complete and was never meant to become a permanent landmark.
