There is never a bad time to visit Paris as there is always something going on, but each season does have its pros and cons. Warmer months mean picnics and parks, but also crowds. During colder months, skies are grey, but there are fewer tourists. There are events year-round, from outdoor summer concerts to holiday extravaganzas in the winter. The summer is the most popular time to visit because the weather is nice, and the rain is light/infrequent. However, you'll have to deal with all the crowds — which can get intense at the most popular attractions. Prices are also higher for accommodation and transportation. Also, August is traditionally a time when many Parisians take their vacations, so some restaurants and independent shops might close down for 2-4 weeks. If you prefer to avoid the crowds, November, January, and February are all slow months so you'll have to deal with so many people. Prices are also lowest during these times.
