Paris

Paris ©
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.
Head to Champs-Elysees and Le Maraisfor some retail therapy. Let the collections at Louvre Museum and Musee d'Orsay capture your imagination. There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, take a stroll through Montmartre, admire the landmark architecture of Arc de Triomphe, and contemplate the long history of Sainte-Chapelle.

Plan my day in Paris using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Cairo, Egypt to Paris is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of car and train. Traveling from Cairo to Paris, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference. Plan for colder temperatures traveling from Cairo in September, with highs in Paris at 24°C and lows at 13°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Tue) so you can go by car to Bayeux.
