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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Louvre Museum and Musee d'Orsay. There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Arc de Triomphe, stroll around Luxembourg Gardens, stop by Montmartre, and see the interesting displays at Musee Rodin.

To find traveler tips, maps, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Paris road trip planning app.

Seattle, USA to Paris is an approximately 14-hour flight. You'll lose 9 hours traveling from Seattle to Paris due to the time zone difference. September in Paris sees daily highs of 70°F and lows of 53°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Saint-Tropez.
