When to go
The best time to visit Paris is late spring or fall. The weather is pleasant and the city is abuzz with festivals and celebrations.
Before April, things can get a bit chilly, and after October, a little gray and rainy.
Avoid August when the city generally shuts down as Parisians take their summer vacations. Many store and restaurants close during this time.
If you can ignore the weather, winter is the cheapest time to visit Paris.
