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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Chateau de Maintenon and Musee de la Grande Guerre. Escape the urban bustle at Fontainebleau Forest (Foret de Fontainebleau) and Parc du Chateau de Nogent le Roi. Change things up with a short trip to World of Disney in Chessy (about 48 minutes away). Next up on the itinerary: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

New Delhi, India to Paris is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from India Standard Time (IST) to Central European Time (CET) is minus 4 hours. Plan for colder temperatures traveling from New Delhi in April, with highs in Paris at 18°C and lows at 6°C.
