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.
Escape the urban bustle at Île de la Cité and Seine River. You'll explore and learn at Louvre Museum and Musee de l'Orangerie. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Paris: Palace of Versailles (in Versailles), Chateau de Chambord (in Chambord) and Chateau de Cheverny (in Cheverny). The adventure continues: pause for some serene contemplation at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, contemplate the long history of Sainte-Chapelle, explore the world behind art at Centre National d'Art et de Culture George Pompidou, and shop like a local with Le Marais.

Fort Lauderdale, USA to Paris is an approximately 12-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Fort Lauderdale to Paris. Plan for colder temperatures traveling from Fort Lauderdale in May, with highs in Paris at 64°F and lows at 49°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Fri) to allow enough time to take a train to Bayeux.
