Regarding the weather conditions, the best period to visit Paris is from May to September.
The weather in Paris, during those months is more sunny but it can be also romantic to visit the City of Light during the winter. July is the hottest month and January the coldest one. As we say in France :
En avril, ne te découvre pas d’un fil (In April, not undress a wire).
En mai, fais ce qu’il te plait (In May, do as you please).
During the months of July and August, students and many workers are in summer holidays. So the French capital is really less busy, subways and buses are less used. It is the period when you can find in the city of light a feeling of tranquility and enjoy a peaceful stay. If the weather is mild -and it is often the case in Paris during this period- , you can have an unforgettable walk along the banks of the Seine.
