Can I Leave The Airport During My Layover?

I'll be flying to Rome, Italy in May, but I have a six hour layover in Paris, France. I want to leave the airport and possibly spend an hour or two in the city, maybe get some coffee and take some pictures. Will this be possible? I know I'll have to go through customs, but my baggage will already be checked... show more I'll be flying to Rome, Italy in May, but I have a six hour layover in Paris, France.

I know I'll have to go through customs, but my baggage will already be checked through to Rome, so will they let me go through without it? I'd hate to spend six hours in an airport in such an awesome city!
