Better to visit Paris in May or June?

Jump to last reply

I know it's only one month difference but I was wondering if any Fodorites have preferences for visiting Paris in May vs. visiting in June?

The last time I went in early May it was surprisingly cold and didn't really start to warm up until the last day of my trip in mid-May. I just recently returned after a winter trip in Paris in January so really want to go during a warmer season for once for my next trip.

In terms of weather, is there that much difference between mid-to-late May vs. June? And is there a big difference in terms of hotel/flight prices and crowds? I'm not sure when the "peak travel season" officially starts though.

On that note, does anyone know if that time is a nice time to visit the vineyards down in south of France, e.g. Bordeaux? I also want to take a mini trip down there for a couple of days and I know it's beautiful in fall but haven't heard anything about how it is in spring.

Thank you!
