Paris

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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte and Chapelle Notre Dame de la Medaille Miraculeuse. Venture out of the city with trips to Chateau de Fontainebleau (in Fontainebleau), Cathedrale Saint-Pierre (in Beauvais) and Vieux Rouen (in Rouen). There's much more to do: explore the galleries of Louvre Museum, don't miss a visit to Place des Vosges, admire the landmark architecture of Arc de Triomphe, and wander the streets of Latin Quarter.

For more things to do, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Paris trip planner.

Toronto, Canada to Paris is an approximately 11-hour flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Toronto to Paris due to the time zone difference. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Toronto in December: high temperatures in Paris hover around °C and lows are around °C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Mon) early enough to go by car to Bayeux.
