Travel Advice

Visit in April, May, early June, September, or October 

When in France, it’s usually recommended to do as the French do. However, I don’t recommend traveling in August. Since most locals are on vacation, you may run into business closures and busier-than-normal tourist attractions. Visit in late spring or fall for moderate temperatures, lighter crowds, colorful blooms or foliage, and more reasonable rates on accommodation.

What to Expect

Ah, Paris (read: Paree), the city of love, the city of light. Everyone needs to visit the most romantic city in the world at least once in their lives, but France is so much more than its most famous city. Discover Alsatian culture for a unique German/French blend you won’t find anywhere else, and live your best jet-setting life when you head south to the Mediterranean coast for glamorous people-watching and visits to quaint villages in the French Riviera.
