Paris is known as the most romantic city in the world. Jam-packed with cultural attractions and chic cafés, most people tend to visit this stunning city in spring and summertime.
However, did you know that Paris can be even more beautiful in the winter months? Imagine a snow-covered Eiffel Tower or enjoying a hot drink in a cosy café when it’s cold outside. In addition to the fantastic photo opportunities, Paris in winter has a lot to offer tourists who are willing to travel in the chillier months of the year.
Experience the real Paris
In the summer months most locals head out of Paris on their own summer holidays. This means you don’t really get the full authentic Parisian experience. When you travel in winter you’ll get to see exactly how the locals live.
One of the main things you’ll love about the city in winter is its selection of food on offer. Regular feasts are put on and markets open tempting you with fresh local produce. There are wild game stalls, Vacherin Mont D’or cheese and plenty of crates of oysters available. If you’re a foodie you’ll love the winter Paris experience.
Buckets of family fun
One attraction you won’t want to miss if you’re travelling with the family is the huge white Ferris wheel. There are also merry-go-rounds located across the city which offer free rides to children.
It’s worth noting that many museums will be closed on Christmas Day. However, most top attractions will still be available including Centre Pompidou and the Eiffel Tower. This makes it an ideal destination to travel to no matter what day of the year it is.
Winter is one of the more affordable times of year to visit. There are plenty of sales on in preparation for Christmas, which means you could even pick up everything you need for the big day on your holiday.
Why not consider a Eurostar trip to Paris organised by Superbreak? Rest assured that everything will be taken care of, and as you’ll be travelling off-peak you will automatically save money compared to booking in the summer.
All in all a winter trip to Paris could be just what you need. It’s quieter, more romantic and it has a really magical feel to it – what more could you want on the run up to the festive season?
