(1) We went to Paris, where we stayed a week.

(2) We went to Paris where we stayed a week.

(3) We went to Paris, and then we stayed a week.

About the sentences I gave, I think it is just a problem of writing style.
Therefore, they all are the same, right?

The clause where we stayed a week is a nonessential relative clause. Thus, the comma should be there. Other than that, they are all perfect.
