Visiting Paris in November

During the month of November, the city tends to be serene and meditative. As the days go by, the number of tourist decrease and the weather starts to be colder. These indicate that November is not a high season for the city.

On the contrary, it is great to visit Paris during November to enjoy some indoor activities and attractions. It would be terrific to spend some time appreciating the awe striking displays on the well known museums and galleries in Paris. You may also explore the wonderful and incomparable architecture of Paris’ churches and cathedrals and come across some delightful arthouse movie theatres found around the city. Even simply sitting comfortably and drinking some cafe crème while watching over the chilly café windows could make your Paris experience extra special as well.

Another advantage of visiting Paris during November would be the higher possibility of having cheaper airfares and hotel reservations. Fares tend to be higher during the summer season. You could freely enjoy Paris too since the packs of cheerful and enthusiastic tourists from all over the globe are already gone. Waiting for never ending lines and getting into places you want to visit would never be a problem for you. Visiting in a low-key season may give you the pleasure of having some casual conversation with some Paris residents since they are most probably back from their escape from Paris’ peak season. To sum it all up, visiting Paris in November wouldn’t be a bad decision at all.
