What do you think can be the best period of the year to visit Paris?

Hello dear! I'm always here talking about this marvellous city! I pass a lot of my time reading and dreaming about it. Today I want to ask you what can be the best period to visit Paris. I went to Paris twice, always in summer, but I'd like to return maybe in winter. Somebody say that the period of Christmas is fantastic, with lights, music and everything like this, maybe also a bit cold! I think that spring can be also a good time to enjoy Paris, when there aren't too much tourist and the weather is not too hot. What do you think about this? Let me know your opinion!

Hi nadianadia! I think all seasons are good for Paris, but it must be beautiful in December. Tip for Louvre: buy the ticket in advance, you do not have to stand in the long queue. I was there quite a long time ago, but as far as I remember we bought the tickets in the bookshop in the subway at Louvre. There was no queue. My reason to return to Paris: we could not get into the Orsay Museum because of the queue. It was a railway station before and the queue was exactly as long as the station. We did not join... I would like to see this museum and certainly see Paris again. I would go there before Christmas.

I've been there in the summer and in winter (February) and I prefered winter, although you'll never find a season when Paris isn't filled with tourist. February was good, it wasn't too warm and not too packed with people, but the queue outside the Louvre was still so long that we didn't go there. We went to the Picasso museum instead, and it was actually nearly empty. If there's markets etc there before Christmas, it'll be a great sight with the Christmas decorations but if it's like other bigger European city it'd be best during the week. I've been to Christmas markeds on Saturdays and Sundays, and you literally walk in a queue.
