The climate in Paris is ideal – the summer is warm enough to catch a tan but not so hot that you will return home sun burnt! Temperatures reach around 25°C and drop to an average of 10°C during the rest of the year. We also suggest you pack a raincoat and umbrella just in case, though there are lots of indoor attractions if the weather isn’t great.

What to expect
Make sure you pack a guide book and some trousers with extra room as you will be filling up on fantastic food and visiting lots of sites! Don’t forget to charge your camera so you can fill up your friends’ newsfeeds with fabulous photos of your trip too. The nearest beach is around 2 hours away if you want to spend a day on the coast, however there’s so much to do in Paris you might want to give the seaside a miss. When it comes to restaurants you’re spoilt for choice and there’s also an amazing variety of nightlife which you simply can’t miss! Shopping is of the highest quality and you’ll find lots of places selling the latest trends. We recommend you take a browse along the Champs-Elysees and dip into some of the world’s most famous brands – although you might find that the prices pretty high, there’s no harm in looking.Attractions
Cram in as much as you can during your stay in Paris – you won’t be able to see everything the city has to offer unless you decide to stay permanently! Tick off the main attractions like the Eiffel tower, the Arc de Triomphe and the Louvre, the world’s largest Palace museum. Furthermore, you could visit Disneyland where you will find guaranteed fun for all the family. There are plenty of events, theatre and other sightseeing tours which happen everyday – perhaps book a ticket in advance for one of these attractions to guarantee your place. We would definitely recommend you take a river cruise on the Seine at night – there’s nothing more magical than seeing
