Strolling narrow, cobble paved streets of the Latin Quarter and up to the Cluny museum instantly evokes medieval Paris. Today, kids run wild in the foot steps of a young Louis XIV who played in the ornamental gardens, fountains, and covered arcades of the classically beautiful Palais Royal. The wide, bustling, Champs Elysées was where 18th century society would meet before Napoleon built his Arc de Triomphe to celebrate his military success. The Eiffel Tower is a monument to the creative energy of the Belle Epoque. Sweeping views from the 2nd floor highlight the buildings of modern Paris.
