Paris Sacre Soeur, wonderful city break

You can take a city break to Paris any time but the atmosphere varies at different times of year. The autumn rentrée starts with a burst of energy for the new cultural season as Parisians return to work and school; winter is a time for festivals and feasting just as traditionally it always has been ; May and June see Paris quietly relaxing into summer; while in August the capital slows right down, as Parisians head to the beach. At this time of year Paris is full of holiday makers so you may be hard-pushed to find a true Parisian around.

Spring is traditionally the most appealing of seasons. The trees are in blossom and Paris is at her romantic and flirtatious best, but during the summer there are plenty of sporting attractions to draw your attention; the French Open, horse racing and of course the Tour de France. In October, the Paris Jazz Festival is an ideal excuse for a short holiday before the run up to Christmas pre-occupies the city and Paris dresses herself in her twinkling best.

Paris is a theatre and in reality a city break can be enjoyed anytime of the year. To save time and money remember to purchase your Paris Pass in advance, it provides access to museums, top attractions, Versailles, River Seine Cruise, City Bus Tour and so much more.
