When to Visit France
Generally, France’s best weather can be enjoyed from May to September – just before, during, and after the country’s summer. With that said, the climate varies significantly between different regions; don’t be surprised if temperatures rise and fall noticeably as you progress through your French tour.
To couple the country’s nicest weather conditions with more manageable tourist numbers, try to avoid visiting in July – the peak of the peak season.
There are a couple of specific occasions that warrant a trip to France outside of these popular months. For example, those interested in the history of Australia’s involvement on the Western Front in World War I (WWI) would get the most satisfaction from a tour around ANZAC Day, in April. Meanwhile, anyone who has dreamt of bringing in the New Year with a festive Parisian celebration will enjoy the option of a December tour.
