Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Paris demands some preparation, and the Rough Guide, honed over nearly two decades, does the job like no other guidebook. Adam Stanhope (reader), Snipe Harbour, MA USA: "This is the best guidebook for Paris for people who want hotel and restaurant recommendations and are interested in background history. This book (and previous editions) have been my companions during several Paris trips over the past thirteen years. It introduced me to my favorite Paris restaurant, a place to which we return every time we are in town." Business Traveller. "All the help and advice you'll need."

When to go

The best time to visit Paris is largely a question of personal taste. The city has a more reliable climate than Britain, with uninterrupted stretches of sun (or rain) year round. However, while it maintains a vaguely southern feel for anyone crossing the English Channel, Mediterranean it is not. Winter temperatures drop well below freezing, with sometimes biting winds. If you're lucky, spring and autumn will be mild and sunny; in summer it can reach the 30sC (80sF).

In terms of pure aesthetics, winter sun is the city's most flattering light, when the pale shades of the older buildings become luminescent without any glare, and the lack of trees and greenery is barely relevant. By contrast, Paris in high summer can be choking, with the fumes of congested traffic becoming trapped within the high narrow streets, and the reflected light in the city's open spaces too blinding to enjoy.

If you visit during the French summer holidays, from July 15 to the end of August, you will find that large numbers of Parisians have fled the city. It's quieter then, but a lot of shops and restaurants will be closed. There is, too, the commercial calendar to consider - fashion shows, trade fairs and the like. Paris hoteliers warn against September and October, and finding a room even at the best of times can be problematic. Early spring, autumn if you book ahead, or the midwinter months will be most rewarding.
