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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ile Saint-Louis and Jardin des Tuileries. Change things up with these side-trips from Paris: Wine Tours & Tastings (in Reims) and Chateau de Fontainebleau (in Fontainebleau). The adventure continues: explore the galleries of Louvre Museum, admire the striking features of Arc de Triomphe, steep yourself in history at Eiffel Tower, and wander the streets of Île de la Cité.

For photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read our Paris trip itinerary builder site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Paris-Orly Airport, Charles de Gaulle International Airport and Paris Beauvais Tillé Airport. In March in Paris, expect temperatures between 53°F during the day and 38°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Wed) early enough to take a train to Versailles.
