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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Louvre Museum and The Army Museum. Get in touch with nature at Île de la Cité and Arboretum de la Vallee-aux-Loups. Get out of town with these interesting Paris side-trips: Chateau Royal de Blois (in Blois), Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte (in Maincy) and Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Laon (in Laon). And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Arc de Triomphe, steep yourself in history at Eiffel Tower, ponder the world of politics at Hotel de Ville, and examine the collection at Musee des Arts Forains.

To see photos, where to stay, more things to do, and more tourist information, read Paris road trip planning website.

Toronto, Canada to Paris is an approximately 11-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Toronto to Paris. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Toronto in December, with highs in Paris at 9°C and lows at 3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to travel to Marseille.

Gateway to Provence

The 2013 European "Capital of Culture," Marseille is the largest port city on the breezy Mediterranean coast and the second largest city in France.
Let the collections at Musee d'Histoire de Marseille and Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations capture your imagination. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Palais Longchamp and St-Trophime Cloister (Cloitre St-Trophime). Venture out of the city with trips to Abbaye du Thoronet (in Le Thoronet), Eglise St-Trophime (in Arles) and Abbaye de La Celle (in La Celle). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathédrale La Major, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Vincent de Paul Church, don't miss a visit to Maison de l'Echevin de Cabre, and see the interesting displays at Centre de la Vieille Charite.

For traveler tips, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, use the Marseille sightseeing planner.

Getting from Paris to Marseille by flight takes about 3.5 hours. Other options: take a train; or drive. Traveling from Paris in December, expect nights in Marseille to be about the same, around 5°C, while days are somewhat warmer, around 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 3rd (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
