Take the time you need to explore the food, art and sights that define these two cities

Countless highlights vie for your attention from the banks of the Seine and the Tiber.

You can weigh in on the age-old culinary rivalry as you bite into a pizza fresh out of an Italian oven. Between the bowl of the Colosseum and the top of the Eiffel Tower, you’ll walk in the footsteps of Caesar, Napoleon and other immortals. You’ll also have the chance to discover the wonder that is Pompeii.

    Versailles

    Welcome to the world headquarters of decadence—the grand palace of Versailles. The enormous estate was built to keep commoners far from its gilded doors and expansive gardens—but fortunately, you won’t have to win Louie or Marie’s notoriously fickle favor to get in. After spending the day in a maze of manicured shrubbery and the staggering Hall of Mirrors, continue the theme of indulgence by treating yourself at a local patisserie nearby.
