Each season of Paris brings its own charm. Visiting Paris from March through to June and October to early November is when the weather is calmer and the crowds are smaller than in the summer months - perfect for those who wish to spend most of their time outdoors. When spring begins and nature rears its flourishing and colourful head, March is the perfect time for long walks around Paris's parks, the most beautiful parks in Europe, and a guided tour Giverny Monet's Gardens would be ideal at this time of year. In June, Paris itself might be a little livelier than earlier in the year but this shouldn’t put you off, as museums start their extended summertime hours to fit with the extra tourists. And fear not, if you missed the winter sales, shopping gets even better when the summer sales season kicks off in June. In the month of October, the city’s Halloween celebrations are awe-inspiring, particularly at Disneyland Paris, where celebrations will enchant children of all ages and adults too!
