Paris

— 22 nights

City of Light

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.
Popular historic sites such as Chapelle Notre Dame de la Medaille Miraculeuse and Aisne Marne American Cemetery are in your itinerary. Musee De Cluny and Musee du Verre are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Paris: Réunion des Musées Nationaux et Grand Palais (in Rueil-Malmaison), Fontainebleau (Chateau de Fontainebleau & Fontainebleau Forest (Foret de Fontainebleau)) and Chartres Cathedral (in Chartres). There's much more to do: step into the grandiose world of The Trianons & The Hamlet, get to know the fascinating history of Left Bank (Rive Gauche), stroll the grounds of Aisne-Marne Memorial & Cemetery, and head outdoors with Avion Normandie - L'Eure de l'Ulm.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Paris online trip itinerary planner.

Toronto, Canada to Paris is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Toronto to Paris. May in Paris sees daily highs of 20°C and lows of 11°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Mon) so you can fly to Lyon.
