A beautiful and romantic city fit for any itinerary, Paris brims with historic associations and remains vastly influential in the realms of culture, art, fashion, food and design.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Eiffel Tower and Montmartre. Head to Le Marais and Saint Germain des Pres Quarterfor plenty of shopping. Change things up with a short trip to Palace of Versailles in Versailles (about 48 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, explore the world behind art at Louvre Museum, admire the landmark architecture of Sainte-Chapelle, and steep yourself in history at Arc de Triomphe.

Plan my Paris trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

New Delhi, India to Paris is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. The time zone difference moving from India Standard Time to Central European Time is minus 4 hours.
