Traveling during France School & National Holidays

Jump to last reply

I am trying to pick what time in the spring of 2016 would be best to plan my upcoming trip to France. I was originally looking at being in Paris during the first week of May but this week has multiple National Holidays. May 1st is Labour day, May 5th is Ascension day & May 8th is V-Day. To avoid the additional crowds during this time I decided to look at April but found that the France School Holidays are from April 2-24 for Zone B & April 16-May 30 for Zone A. These will be the areas I will be visiting during our 2 week trip. My question is should I avoid these times and schedule in early April or later in May? I do realize that Paris is always busy but I don't want to compound the problem of dealing with the crowds during a Holiday when the Parisian's are out on Holiday as well.
