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 Fondation Louis Vuitton. Get in touch with nature at Île de la Cité and Ile Saint-Louis. Get out of town with these interesting Paris side-trips: Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte (in Maincy), Chateau Royal de Blois (in Blois) and Arboretum de la Vallee-aux-Loups (in Chatenay-Malabry). And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Arc de Triomphe, steep yourself in history at Eiffel Tower, explore the world behind art at Atelier des Lumieres, and brush up on your military savvy at The Army Museum.

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.

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 Centre de la Vieille Charite capture your imagination. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Palais Longchamp and Abbaye Saint Victor. Venture out of the city with trips to Arles (Eglise St-Trophime & St-Trophime Cloister (Cloitre St-Trophime)), Abbaye de La Celle (in La Celle) and Abbaye du Thoronet (in Le Thoronet). Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathédrale La Major, look for gifts at Musee du Savon de Marseille La Licorne, get engrossed in the history at Musee d'Archeologie Mediterraneenne, and don't miss a visit to Maison de l'Echevin de Cabre.
