Destination Essentials

A visit to Paris welcomes a year-round bloom of cultural and picturesque grandeur. Still, certain periods offer you the best the city has in store. Summer, from June to August, is the prime time. Sun-kissed weather serenades the city while people sip refreshing rosé on terraces and river banks buzz with locals and visitors alike.

However, many establishments close during August, with Parisians escaping the city heat. The stretches of Spring (April-May) and Autumn (September-October) are quite favourable, providing milder temperatures, thinner crowds and an unwithered charm. For budget travellers, winter presents quieter sights and lower prices, with December adding a pinch of enchantment with its sparkling lights and festive delights.
