When to visit
If you're planning a holiday in Paris, our top picks for the best time to travel would be February, April and June
Where better for a Valentine's escape than the original City of Love? Strolling its wide avenues and boulevards hand in hand, perhaps stopping for a glass of wine at a street cafe. Ooh la la!
Paris in the spring has its own unique charms: bright and sunny days, with the very beginnings of alfresco dining, romantic walks along the Seine, and chestnuts in blossom, all preparing for summer.
There are few lovelier cities than Paris in summer. Boulevards and parks bathed in golden sunshine and ample opportunity for pausing at one of its tiny street cafés to people-watch. A pure joy!

Books inspired by Paris
Our hand-picked selection of books to get you in the mood for your Paris holiday
An epic novel following four families over hundreds of years: bound by forbidden loves and marriages of convenience; dogged by vengeance and murderous secrets; torn apart by the irreconcilable differences of birth and faith, and brought together by the tumultuous history of their city. A book which bursts to life in the intrigue, corruption and glory of its people.
Chosen by Stuart
A poignant two-part novel about French society at the point of the German invasion of WW2. Originally intended as 4 parts, the author's untimely death in Auschwitz in 1942 prevented the rest from being written. This was discovered and published 65 years later and is now hailed as a masterpiece.
A beautifully written and sensuous novel set in 18th century France. An unwanted and "unscented" child is born with an extraordinary sense of smell and uses his gift to become the finest perfumer in France. But his dreams of creating the world's finest perfume bring out murderous instincts. A cult classic, you won't have ever read anything like it!
