Paris

Your Paris vacation

The French capital woos with its couture, seduces with its chocolate and kindles romance in Jardin des Tuileries. Journey down the Siene between visits to Notre-Dame, the Louvre or Musee d'Orsay. Climb the steps at Sacre-Coeur, and watch the sun set over Paris. Visit Marche des Enfant Rouges in Marais on a Sunday morning for the street performers and accordions.

Whether it's your first time on a Paris vacation or your fiftieth, let Orbitz help with the planning. We'll give you the details on the best time go, top 10 highlights and tips on the choicest petit fours and boulangeries.

Best time to take a vacation to Paris

  • Paris in springtime lives up to its reputation: Flowers bloom, cafe culture returns, hotel rates soar. But with a bit of planning, you can find good hotel deals. Summer is peak season, and social calendars fill with festivals and open-air events (many free) -- so be sure to plan well in advance.

    Paris gets a makeover in fall: new movies, new fashions and that gorgeous crisp in the air. Fall is low season, and cheap hotel rates in Paris abound.

    Winter gets a bad rap; with so many museums, cathedrals and cozy cafes in Paris, November and December might be just your style. Christmas markets start in late November and early December, and the City of Light takes illumination to a whole new level.

Insider tips for Paris travel

  • Bread and chocolate

    How to buy bread in Paris? Look for the longest lines. At Poilane, that's around 4 p.m. when it's fresh out of the oven. And chocolate? Richart, near the Musee d'Orsay. (Go for the liqueur-filled).

  • Cirque de Paris

    Bring your petits enfants on official kids days: They can meet the animals, put on clown makeup, practice tight-rope walking and lunch with the artistes.

  • Wine Bars

    Get in early or after 1:30 p.m. to avoid the crowds. Juveniles Lavinia and Legrand Filles et Fils in the Opera district are among the finest.

  • Le Hangar

    Dine at this gem located across from the Pompidou. Order the beef stroganoff and cream of lentil soup. For dessert: everything.

  • Church Music

    Most churches have free musical performances, from classical concerts to organ recitals. Regular concerts are held in St-Julien-de-Pauvre, St-Germain-des-Pres, Notre-Dame and Sainte-Chapelle.

    Climb the Arc de Triomphe for glittering views of L'Etoile. Settle the score between a sweet tooth and eye-candy cravings at nearby Laduree.

  • Rodin Museum (Musee Rodin)

    Even the art-shy swoon at Gates of Hell, The Thinker, The Kiss and the setting here. Laze in the sculpture gardens and write postcards.
