Top Travel Itinerary Tips

All great journeys begin with the pleasure of anticipation. You’ve booked your plane tickets, confirmed your accommodation, and even though you’re still sitting at your desk surrounded by a mini-fortress of Paris guide books, your imagination has already packed its little bag, raced downstairs (slamming the door in its haste) and hailed a taxi to the airport. It didn’t even pause to say au revoir or give you polite air-kisses on both cheeks. And before you know it, your imagination has already settled at a Parisian café with a glass of Beaujolais in hand.

But if anticipating a vacation is the first pleasure we experience, then planning it can be a downright pain. You can’t swing a baguette in Paris without hitting a world-famous landmark—museums, monuments, gardens, statues, cathedrals, not to mention a certain well-known iron tower—there are literally hundreds of things to see and do in the City of Light.
