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.
Visit Eiffel Tower and Champs-Elysees for their historical value. Get in touch with nature at Paris Plage and Île de la Cité. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Montmartre, appreciate the history behind Arc de Triomphe, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, and identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas.

Venice ©
Virtually unchanged for the last six centuries, Venice is actually a group of islands made famous by a series of canals, bridges, monuments, piazzas, and narrow pedestrian lanes.
Visiting Canal Grande and Bagni Alberoni will get you outdoors. For shopping fun, head to Piazza delle Erbe or Oreficeria Boscolo Gioie. Explore Venice's surroundings by going to Verona (Chiesa di San Procolo, Basilica di San Zeno Maggiore, &more). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Doge's Palace, don't miss a visit to Piazza San Marco, take in the views from Ponte dei Sospiri, and pause for some photo ops at Punta della Dogana.

To see photos, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Venice journey planner.

Traveling by flight from Paris to Venice takes 5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of train, shuttle, and flight; or drive. Traveling from Paris in August, expect Venice to be a bit warmer, temps between 85°F and 66°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Fri) early enough to travel to Rome.
