Fashion-it spot, romantic cityscape, global centre of art and culture, historically rich, home to scenic parks and sidewalk cafes where you can sip a glass of French wine or a cup of coffee, Paris’ dynamic vibrancy makes it one of the most unique and stunning places you’ve ever been. It gets a lot of hype, but Paris will continue to impress you and live up to its reputation.

Rain can fall year round, but fall and spring are great times to visit with pleasant temperatures and a drop in rainfall. The average temperatures in Paris during the month of May are 15°C.
