WHAT TIME OF YEAR SHOULD I VISIT?

My favorite month in Paris is June, especially around Bastille Day (France’s July 4th) when the Eiffel Tower has a spectacular firework display, music, and festivities. Highly recommend seeing once in your lifetime. 🎆

But the best time of year to visit is when the weather and tourism is mild around April, May, June then October and November.

January and February is the cheapest time of year to visit.

WHERE SHOULD I STAY?

Location, Location, Location… is most important when time is short.

The Sofitel Paris Le Faubourg is 5-star designer hotel centrally located in the heart of the city. Once an 18th century Parisian mansion, the luxurious decor in all 125 rooms radiates sophistication from balcony to the all-inclusive breakfast. Surrounded by designer boutiques, pick up a Ladurée macaroon next door before strolling to the famous Champs-Élysées Avenue, Louvre Museum, and the Eiffel Tower within walking distance.
