Chicago, Illinois

Paris, France

Paris is known as the City of Love and the City of Lights, and you can clearly see why when you visit. The River Seine runs through the city, and you can enjoy a picnic on the shore. Travelers who come to Paris often visit the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, and National Museum of Modern Art.

Experience Paris

Few things in life are as beautiful or special as Paris in the springtime. The flowers start blooming, the streets fill with people, and the rain washes away the darkness of the winter. Spring also has temperatures near or above 70 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes spending time outside more enjoyable. Summer is also a good time to visit, though some travelers aren't fond of the 85 degree and higher temperatures.

After arriving at the Paris-Charles De Gaulle Airport, you should look for transportation to your hotel. Taxis, rental cars, and public buses provide ample ways for travelers to get around the city. Taxis are the most expensive, especially if you need one every day, while buses and other public vehicles are cheaper, but you don't get the privacy that you would during a car ride.
