Best time to visit Paris, France?

  • We recommend visiting Paris during the month of March when there are fewer tourists and room rates are less expensive. During this period, the cost of a room for two is $115/night on average. That's $20 saved per day compared to what you would have paid in June. Temperatures hover in the high 40s, a little cooler than the average 70°F you would experience during high season.
  • Most tourists visit Paris during the spring/early summer. This is the busiest season so make sure to book your accommodation early. The Coldplay week (July 16th - 17th) and the Roland Garros 2018 week (May 26th to June 11th) are also very popular times that you should avoid if you don't like crowds.
  • When visiting Paris between May and July, don't forget to pack an umbrella since it rains most days.
