There are three international airports located in the Paris area: Roissy-Charles de Gaulle International Airport, Orly International Airport, and Beauvais Airport. Of the three, the vast majority of domestic and international traffic goes to Roissy-Charles de Gaulle (CDG), which features three separate terminals to accommodate many flights to Paris at once. Along with its service for air travelers, CDG also offers several restaurants and a post office. Orly International Airport (ORY) is used mostly by domestic air carriers within France or for accommodating Paris flights from other European countries. The airport is located 40 minutes outside of Paris, but visitors can take the Orlyval light rail train to the city from the terminal. Beauvais Airport is a regional hub for low-cost air carriers within the country.

Paris Weather

Generally, Paris enjoys a mild climate during most of the year. While the city doesn't get much heavy precipitation, there is a fair amount of rainfall during May, July, and October. If you don't enjoy being stuck in the snow, you'll appreciate weather in Paris, since the city rarely experiences heavy snowfall. If you’ll be booking your flights to Paris based on the weather, your best time to visit will be the summer. During the warmer months, average high temperatures in Paris only reach about 75 degrees, so you’ll probably want to pack a light jacket and pick up a beret.

Getting Around Paris

One of the best things about traveling in Paris is the city's large public transportation system. The Metropolitan Railway, an underground subway, offers 16 different lines for travel around the city's most popular areas and provides service at all hours of the day and night. Overnight transportation is available through the Night Bus service, which connects passengers to the major train stations in the city. Many visitors choose to get around by renting bicycles to travel through the central parts of Paris or along the rivers. Passengers on Paris flights will see the detailed maps of the network of roads and bicycle paths. Much of Paris is pedestrian-friendly, so you might prefer walking to most of the popular sights. Tourists can combine travel with sightseeing by booking a walking tour through the city.

Paris Attractions

Paris flights provide an easy way for travelers to get to the city's most famous attractions and monuments. Many of the most popular sights date back hundreds of years to the Middle Ages or earlier. Some of the most visited attractions in Paris include:

  • Eiffel Tower: over 1,000 feet high and weighing more than 7,000 tons
  • Louvre Museum: 30,000 works of art, including paintings by masters such as Leonardo da Vinci
  • Notre Dame Cathedral: one of the oldest and most visited structures in the entire world
  • Arc de Triomphe, originally commissioned by Napoleon in the early nineteenth century
  • Chateau de Versailles: the former residence of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette located in Versailles

Paris When to Go

Spring, summer, autumn, winter—every time of year is a reason to fall under Paris’s spell. Spring brings abundant sunshine and pleasant temperatures—perfect weather for boulevard strolling, café loitering, and outdoor activities like cycling along the quais of the Seine.

Summers heat up in more ways than one. A number of festivities shake up the streets, like the annual Fête de la Musique (June) and Paris Plages, a temporary beach laid out along the river banks (August). Temperatures hover in the moderate 60s and 70s, though on occasion, a heat wave hits (when booking a hotel, be sure that your room has air conditioning; many don’t). In August, tourists reign over the city as Parisians leave for the countryside during les grandes vacances, during which many small businesses shutter for the month.

Peak season winds down in September, though the warm weather lingers. And as locals return, cultural events pick up pace. Brisk temperatures arrive in November. If visiting during this time, pack sweaters and umbrellas; autumn in Paris can be chilly and damp.

During the holiday season, Paris lights up, literally: Christmas ornaments dress up the streets and holiday markets spread gift-giving cheer. Frigid temperatures and low season settle in shortly after the new year. Shoppers, take note: France’s sales are regulated affairs, and one of the authorized periods falls post-holidays, in January (the other takes place in June, right before summer vacation).
