When to Fly to Paris
If you are a traveler of high standard of living, then the major tourist season and the most expensive time to take a flight to Paris is from Easter to mid-September. In July and mid-January the culture fashion shows begin in Paris, so these months are also very busy times. August is a bit quieter season as in this month most Parisians leave the city for their own vacation. Off season begins in March and April and it’s very easy to find first-class and deluxe hotels in discount prices.
After reading lots of information about what this fantastic city has to offer, you should probably think about how to get there. Paris is principally served by two international airports — Roisse/ Charles de Gaulle (CDG) to the north of the city, and the Orly (ORY) to the south — that welcome around 75 million passengers every year.
