January - March
The winter months can be very cold throughout France depending upon what are you are visiting. Paris` low season temperatures fall in the 30 and 40F-degree range, it never gets very cold and snow is extremely rare. It is an excellent time to visit Paris because crowds are much fewer yet many cultural events take place. You will save on flights and hotels this time of year, just bring a heavy jacket! If you`re visiting the countryside, you`ll find it very quiet with many restaurants and hotels closed.
