Paris is one of the most iconic cities in the world, and it’s easy to see why. The city has everything you could ever want: amazing architecture, delicious food, and a thriving nightlife scene. But there are so many things to do in Paris! How do you decide what activities will make your trip special? Let me tell you about my five-day getaway to the City of Light.

Day 1: Fly to Paris

You’ll need to fly into Paris. The best time to visit this city is during spring and fall, when it’s not too hot or cold. If you’re visiting in summer, consider taking advantage of one of the many events that take place throughout the year—the annual Fête des lumières (Light Festival), for example, features numerous installations and performances along the Seine riverfront.

The average flight from New York City takes around two hours; there are several airlines that offer direct flights between New York City and Paris—the most popular being Air France/KLM KLM Royal Dutch Airlines EVA Air JetBlue American Airlines Delta United Continental

Day 2: Get a Paris Visitor’s Visa

The next step is to get your Paris visitor’s visa.

To get a visa for France, you need to visit an embassy or consulate in person and provide proof of hotel reservations and flight information. You can also apply by mail using the Form DS-160 form; however, this method takes longer than the other two options (about two weeks).

If you decide to apply at an embassy or consulate in New York City, there’s no need for you to make any extra trips before traveling! Just show up with:

  • An original passport; 2) Two photos taken within 30 days of applying (one photo must clearly show both eyes); 3) Proof that accommodation was paid for during your stay as well as proof that all necessary documents were submitted upon arrival at their destination country such as airline ticket(s), hotel receipt(s), etc., which should be stamped into one single document showing all three important pieces together so they’re seen clearly upon inspection by officials during processing time period required prior receiving approval letter granting permission granted under certain conditions provided herein

Day 3: Explore the City

Day 3: Explore the City

Paris is a place that you can spend all day exploring and still have time to see everything. The city has so much to offer, but if you want an incredible experience, then there’s no better way than by seeing Paris at night. On this day, we’ll take in some of Paris’ finest sites during sunset or dusk. We’ll start with a visit to the Eiffel Tower (which has been called “the most visited building in the world”), which offers panoramic views of both sides of our beautiful city as well as breathtaking vistas across France from its perch above Champ de Mars Park (or Parc du Champ de Mars). From here we’ll head over to see Notre Dame Cathedral—one of France’s most iconic structures—and visit some other nearby landmarks like Musée Rodin or Musée d’Orsay before heading back home again!

Day 4: Impress Your Parisian Friends

The next day is your last chance to impress your Parisian friends. You can either show them how much you know about the city or go out of your way to show them what you learned in class.

You’ll want to start off with a visit to the Louvre, where you can see many different artworks from around Europe and across time periods. Then it’s on to see one of Paris’ most famous landmarks: the Eiffel Tower!

After seeing all these famous monuments, continue on down through central Paris until you reach Arc de Triomphe (the tomb for Napoleon I), Champs Elysees Avenue shopping district, Notre Dame Cathedral Basilica and Sacre Coeur Basilica (the church built over his grave).

Day 5: Go Back Home!

You’re almost there! Now it’s time to go back home.

Make sure you leave enough time in your schedule so that you can get to the airport on time. If possible, check in online and print a boarding pass before leaving for the day. Pack up all of your belongings into suitcases and bags—you don’t want any last-minute scrambling when it comes time to check in! Eat breakfast before heading out of town (again, this is optional). Then head off toward Charles de Gaulle Airport or Orly Airport depending on which city/country/state you’re flying into as well as what direction they’re located from where you live currently; this will be helpful when trying not only find their location but also figure out how much money it costs per person based upon distance traveled during peak hours versus off-peak ones during non-traveling times such as weekends etc..

You can spend five days in Paris!

You can spend five days in Paris, and you should. You’ll be able to see the sights and enjoy the culture of this beautiful city. The food is delicious, the wine is great and so are all those museums and galleries. It’s also possible to shop for souvenirs if that’s your thing!
