What is the best time to travel to Paris?

Paris is a great destination all year round, but the best season to travel to Paris is spring. In spring the city is at its finest for the blooming nature, the temperatures are pleasant for a city holiday and the cultural life is at its best. In winter you can admire the Christmas lights and visit atmospheric Christmas fairs. For shoppers the famous sales around january-february are the perfect activity.

Each season is different and has something unique to offer in Paris. The busiest and most expensive periods in Paris are around new years, the last two weeks of february and october, easter and july-august. In addition to transportation and accommodation we recommend booking your local experiences early because the holiday seasons are busy in Paris.

Reviews of Paris experiences

Visit of Ile Saint Louis Paris

Antoiny is a perfect guide and absolutely recommendable. He showed us places we would never have discovered alone. You realize that he has been living in Paris for a long time. We enjoyed the tour very much and recommend you to meet Antoiny!
