When is the Best Time to Visit France?

The best time to visit France depends entirely upon what you want to accomplish on your trip and what region of the country you want to visit; however, most travellers would probably agree that the best time to visit France is during the summer months of June to August. Although this corresponds with the peak tourist season, the summer months will generally see warmer, drier weather that is great for sightseeing and outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, trekking, and climbing.

If you would rather avoid the crowds and don’t mind cooler weather, then the best time to visit France is during the shoulder seasons of spring and autumn. During these periods the cost of travel (transportation, accommodations, etc) will generally be cheaper and there will be less tourists around at main attractions, making it a pleasant time to explore all that France has to offer.

For those who want to experience the holidays in France or set out into the Alps for a ski holiday, then winter will be the best time to visit France.
