Paris

— 14 nights

City of Light

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. Head to Champs-Elysees and 107 Rivolifor some retail therapy. Explore Paris' surroundings by going to Palace of Versailles (in Versailles), Musee du Peigne (in Ezy sur Eure) and Le Bois des Aigles (in Balines). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Eiffel Tower, explore the galleries of Centre National d'Art et de Culture George Pompidou, take a stroll through Montmartre, and pause for some serene contemplation at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre.

Plan my Paris trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Paris is an approximately 10-hour flight. Traveling from Dubai to Paris, you'll gain 3 hours due to the time zone difference. Prepare for cooler weather when traveling from Dubai in December: high temperatures in Paris hover around 9°C and lows are around 3°C. You'll have a few hours on the 3rd (Fri) to wrap things up before traveling home.

France has been the world's most popular tourist destination for decades, and geographically, it is one of the most diverse countries in Europe. Its cities are holiday hot spots and contain some of the greatest treasures in Europe, its countryside is prosperous and well tended, and it boasts dozens of major tourist attractions, like Paris, the French Riviera, the Atlantic beaches, the winter sport resorts of the French Alps, as well as the castles of the Loire Valley, Brittany, and Normandy. The country is renowned for its gastronomy, particularly wines and cheeses, as well as its history, culture, and fashion industry.

You'll find that the French people are very polite and may react coldly to you if you forget this. You might be surprised as you're greeted by other customers and the proprieter when you walk into a restaurant or a shop. Be sure to take your sightseeing off the beaten path in France. Besides the famous Eiffel Tower and the chic resorts of the Côte d'Azur (French Riviera) you'll find many places to visit in the form of museums filled with fine art, crafts, and archaeological relics, wonderful medieval villages and castles, diverse national parks, and local shopping direct from artisans themselves.

Whether you're touring the Christmas Markets or going skiing during winter, viewing the springtime influx of color in Provence, sunbathing on the Mediterranean coast in the summer, or watching the fall foliage against the backdrop of the châteaux in the Loire Valley, you're sure to find just the right place to be. Spring is a time when the tourist attractions are just starting to expand their hours, but it may still be cold in the mountainous regions and the north. Summer is the busiest time in France with the longest hours for many museums and attractions, but it's often when you will experience the most crowds. Winter in France is filled with winter carnivals, Christmas Markets, and of course, skiing. Fall is a time to celebrate the release of Beaujolais nouveau wine in November, as well as experience Nuit Blanche, a day in October when major attractions, museums, galleries, parks, and swimming pools remain open all night.
