“A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty, and the point of Life.” – Thomas Jefferson

It comes to me as no surprise that, the city of love and light has stolen hearts of millions of travellers just like it charmed Thomas Jefferson’s – one of the Founding Fathers of America. The city that dictates good taste and culture world over, has been immortalised by singers, artists, writers and filmmakers for its extraordinary food, fashion and culture. Although, Paris is pretty much a heart-stealer throughout the year, there is a very special time of the year when this classic city, transforms into a magical land – Spring time. Paris in Spring, is that special time when people come out to enjoy the dazzling beauty spread in its numerous parks and sip coffee leisurely in its open-air cafes.

Here are the reasons to convince your friends to visit Paris in Spring:

Point of interest – Eiffel Tower

A view of Eiffel Tower

A landmark like none other, the Eiffel Tower is the ultimate symbol of France world over, and its popularity is demonstrated well by the fact that it is the most visited paid monument in the world. Given its popularity, it makes practical sense to get ‘jump the queue’ or priority tickets to avoid the queues. We also recommend having a meal as you enjoy the incomparable views of Paris from the two award winning restaurants – 58 Tour Eiffel on the first floor and Le Jules Verne on the second floor.

The tower opens early and closes late (09:30 AM to 11:00 PM)

Paris in Spring – Enter the food heaven

If baguettes, wine, pastries, croissants, and macrons are words that evoke strong emotions and make your mouth water, you have to visit Paris – the city quite possibly the centre of the entire food universe. Made even more famous from movies and Michelin stars, Paris is the ultimate city for any foodie worth their salt. The city excels in classic and refined Parisian cuisine as well as exciting new concepts like molecular gastronomy.

Highly recommended restaurants include La Bonne Excuse, L’ Abeille, and Sacre’e fleur.

Paris in Spring – Dive into the art and culture

No other city in the world can offer you the sheer breadth of activities to indulge in when it comes to art and culture. Where else will one find the world-renowned works of art like the Mona Lisa,  sculptures like The Thinker, get to choose from over 300 films from all over the world to watch on any given day, or drop in to the Shakespeare and Company, a mythical bookstore that served as home to a generation of ground-breaking, influential writers.

Must visit places include the Louvre Museum, the Institut du Monde Arabe (Arab World Institute), and Montmartre Walk.

Paris in spring – Have the city to yourself

Around 60 million people visit France every year, and this enormous crowd size (during peak season ) comes as a shocking surprise, when tourists encounter hours long queues and over-crowded tourist attractions. To avoid feeling like a packed sardine, we recommend visiting Paris in spring, a shoulder season (just before peak summer season) when you can enjoy the beautiful city like you have it only to yourself.  And the best part – everything from hotel to flight prices are cheaper during this time!

Here are the holiday packages for Paris in Spring!

Whoever gave Paris the moniker, ‘City of love’ must have seen Paris in Spring. The flowers blossom into exceptional colours adding a feeling of romance to the city, which you can feel even on a short walk on the street. We recommend going to the famed Parisian gardens for walks or romantic picnics during this time to fall even deeper in love with this city (if that’s possible). Or you can sit back in a stylish open-air café and watch the city over a cup of coffee.

Some of the most famous gardens we recommend are Luxembourg Gardens, Monet’s Garden in Giverny, Tracede’ro Garden, Buttes Chaumont Park, and Tuileries Park.
