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.
On the 17th (Tue), take a stroll through Le Marais.

Plan my trip to Paris with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Atlanta, USA to Paris is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Atlanta to Paris due to the time zone difference. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Atlanta in September, with highs in Paris at °F and lows at °F. On the 17th (Tue), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can drive to Bayeux.
