Where to stay in Paris:


Regardless of where you stay in Paris you will have to walk a lot. If you are in town and you have spare time, and you want to see most of the sights, you will have to travel a lot. A good option is to stay in the most central districts, namely the ones with the numbers from 1 to 6. Before choosing which area you want to stay it's important to find out what is the best one according to your travel plan. You can choose neighborhoods that are usually very busy at night, like St. Germain, Montparnasse, Bastille, Champs-Elysees, and the Latin Quarter. The city of Paris is divided into 20 arrondissements, that are regions just like neighborhoods. Stay within that limit of 20 arrondissements, because that is where most of the city's sights and subway lines are.

Weather in Paris:


Paris is characterized by a climate between the oceanic climate and the continental one. There are frequent rains in all seasons, it is a difficult weather to forecast, but the continental influence makes it rain less than on the coast. The climate varies a lot in the summer, from warm and fuggy days with temperatures above 35°C (95°F) to cold days, with wind and rain. Spring and autumn are more pleasant months to visit the city because those seasons have milder temperatures. Winter can be a little harsh on those not used to temperatures close to 0°C (32°F), but it doesn't snow often in the city. Winter officially begins in December and ends in March, and the days are shorter this time of year.
