    Default Have you ever gone to Paris?

    Is it possible to use "Have you ever gone to Paris" instead of "Have you ever been to Paris"?

    Thanks.

    I'll say no, half expecting somebody to find a possible context for it.

    Thanks.
    I would say "yes". In that sense, "gone" would mean "traveled".
