Best Time To Visit

The best time to visit France is in spring (April-May), summer (June-August), or fall (September-October).
Spring season is pleasant across the country, with fewer crowds and temperatures ranging from 55F to 68F (13C to 20C). Temperature can rise up to 84°F (29C) in summer, but it’s still not too hot to keep exploring France. Autumn is warm and cozy, with temperatures between 61°F and 77°F (16C to 25C), where you’ll find vibrant views as the leaves change color.
France enjoys mild temperatures, although you can expect some differences between the different regions. There’s a Mediterranean climate in the south and wetter weather in the north. In August summer vacation, most of the country closes down to chase the sunshine in the south. If you’re ok with the cold, winter is one of my preferred times to explore Paris, as there are fewer tourists, yet the restaurants are still active with locals.

quick tip 2 million people descend on Lille for its annual flea market and the Christmas Market. If you don’t mind visiting during the rainiest month then it’s also recommended to visit in December.

Flights & Accommodations

Light, breathable clothing for summer and waterproof winter gear for the mountains all year round. In winter, even the Mediterranean resorts often require a sweater or jacket for the cool evenings.
