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.
Change things up with a short trip to Disneyland Paris in Marne-la-Vallee (about 38 minutes away). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Louvre Museum, step off the mainland to explore Île de la Cité, admire the masterpieces at Musee d'Orsay, and explore the galleries of Centre National d'Art et de Culture George Pompidou.

To find maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Paris journey maker site .

Sydney, Australia to Paris is an approximately 27-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. The time zone changes from Australian Eastern Standard Time (New South Wales) (AEST) to Central European Time (CET), which is usually a -9 hour difference. Plan for cooler temperatures traveling from Sydney in December, with highs in Paris at 9°C and lows at 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Tue) to allow enough time to take a train to Avignon.
