Paris ©
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.
For shopping fun, head to Champs-Elysees or Le Marais. Step out of the city life by going to Île de la Cité and L'Orangerie. There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Louvre Museum, pause for some photo ops at Arc de Triomphe, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, and contemplate the long history of Eiffel Tower.

For maps, ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Paris tour itinerary builder site.

Tel Aviv, Israel to Paris is an approximately 8-hour flight. Traveling from Tel Aviv to Paris, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference. Prepare for slightly colder weather when traveling from Tel Aviv in July: high temperatures in Paris hover around 30°C and lows are around 18°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Sat) early enough to travel to Cassis.
