For international flights, it's probably going to be O'Hare International Airport.

From there, you can take the Blue Line into the city.

Thank you. I have a choice of which airport when I book my flight. So that's why I asked. My travel agent said O'Hare takes very long to get through - is that true?

Yes O’hare will definitely be a lot more crowded and busy than Midway. If you have a choice of equivalent flights from either airport going to Nashville, I would probably pick Midway. You can take the Orange Line train there from the city, just make sure it’s during the day since that line stops running late night.

O'Hare International Airportis the only way you'll be arriving internationally.  You can then follow the signs to the city and subway trains.  Take the blue line into the city.  Once you get to Clark and Lake, you are in downtown.  Also from that stop you'll be able to access all other subway lines.

If you fly into O'Hare International Airport, then take the Amtrak train into Union Station. There are cabs on Canal St. I suggest you stay in Old Town. The streets l walk on Clark, Wells, La Salle, State, Belmont. Anywhere near Wrigley Field is easy walking. There is the El train, plus the Red line. There are buses to the Museum of Science & Industry, the Adler Planetarium, and the Chicago History Museum. I think the History Museum is free on Tuesday. These 3 are near each other, as well as the Shedd Aquarium. Outside of the Shedd Aquarium, there are boat tours for approximately $20. Take the boat, it gives a great history of the city, and Lake Michigan.
