Best time to visit
High travel season in Paris is usually from April until the end of October. The crowds are smaller if you decide to go in winter.
If you go to Paris in early spring, you will experience the beauty of Paris awakening from winter. You will also benefit from the hotel rates being slightly lower than in summer.
Autumn is also a great time to visit - the weather is still mostly warm with just occasional rains.
Thinking where to go for Christmas? Paris of course turns into a magic place during the Christmas time. And if you prefer travel during the off-peak season, January and February are the best time to do so – fewer people at attractions and restaurants, and great discounts in Parisian department stores.
