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.
Change things up with a short trip to Palace of Versailles in Versailles (about 48 minutes away). There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at Louvre Museum, walk around Luxembourg Gardens, admire the striking features of Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris, and contemplate the long history of Sainte-Chapelle.

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

Minneapolis, USA to Paris is an approximately 12-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Minneapolis to Paris due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Minneapolis in April, things will get a bit warmer in Paris: highs are around 60°F and lows about 42°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Thu) early enough to travel to Vienna.
