It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Paris

Peak Season: June to early-September

Paris overflows with tourists come summer, due to warm weather and ample daylight hours (sunset occurs around 10:30 pm in late June); August sees many restaurants and shops close as Parisians head off on holiday.

Off Season: November to February

Although the days can be brisk (temperatures average 40°F) and the skies gray, there's very little snow in Paris – just be prepared to bundle up before setting off sightseeing. Crowds and hotel rates are at a minimum.

Sweet Spot: March to May; late-September to October

March and April can be balmy and damp. May and June offer drier weather and blooming gardens. Early autumn equals crisp air, sunshine, and a bustling cultural calendar. Bonus: fewer crowds and moderate rates.
