Midnight in Paris

Woody Allen's movie "Midnight in Paris" is a delight. Wry, funny, a bit magical, the characters are wonderful, but, for me the city is the real star. The cinematography of Paris is beyond terrific and reminds Francophiles with an enduring love of this remarkable city of just why we fell in love in the first, second, and third place..

Even better than the movie, book a flight and cook up a trip to this romantic, artistic, beautiful, historic, occasionally confounding metropolis.

Talk with us about YOUR Great Days in Paris... now and for the future. These ARE the good old days.
