When to Visit Paris?
Although Paris has reasonably priced accommodation all year round, the summer months, May to September, are the most expensive. The city is alive in summer with outdoor music festivals like the Fete de la Musique and Bastille Day celebrations on July 14th. For something a little different visit the open-air cinema at the Parc de la Villette. You can find cheaper air fares and hotel deals in spring time and during the autumn months of September to early November. Winter can be dark and cold but still a wonderful time to visit Paris, especially during Christmas and New Year festivities when Parisians flock to the Champs-Elysees as the clock strikes twelve.
Where to Stay in Paris?
Accommodation wise, Paris has plenty to offer. There is an exciting range of options available throughout the year. It is a good idea to book accommodation early, especially during the peak season. Why not reserve a room in Le Bristol Paris, the Mandarin Oriental, Hotel Crayon or the Hotel de Londres Eiffel?
