Paris is the capital city of France — some say the cultural capital of Europe. From high fashion to fine dining, river cruises to the Moulin Rouge, Paris is aglow with style, history, art and architectural splendor.
Within winding cobblestone streets, the city contains an unparalleled number of unmissable sites, including the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay and the Luxembourg Gardens.
Fast facts about Paris
Where is it? Paris is located in northern France, but not on the coast. Its life source is the Seine river, which flows through the center of the city.
How do I get there? Fly to Paris from international hubs like NYC, LA, Atlanta or Chicago. A direct flight will take between six and 10 hours, depending on where you start. But the cheapest flights will likely have layovers.
When should I go? To avoid large crowds and enjoy mild weather, visit Paris in September or October, or March through May. These are considered the best times for traveling to Paris. It’s best to avoid flying in June or July because rates can hike up by 26%, according to data from Skyscanner.com.
When should I book tickets? Travelers in search of a deal could save up to 12% by booking tickets to Paris in December, according to Skyscanner.com.
What should I do? There’s no shortage of sights and activities in Paris: Climb the Eiffel Tower, see the L’Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dame Cathedral, watch the Moulin Rouge, cruise along the Seine and so much more.
Book a cheaper flight to Paris by traveling during spring or fall — just in time to see either the flowers bloom or leaves turn crisp. After all, you’ll want as many euros as possible to spend on pain au chocolat (chocolate croissants) and du vin (wine) after touching down.
