The 4th arrondissement located in the centre of Paris is above all known for its magnificent Ile de la Cité and the famous Cathedral of Notre Dame, the beautiful Ile Saint Louis and an important part of the Marais including the Jewish Area. Due to these very famous sites, it is one of the most touristic districts of Paris. It is also rich in several sites remarkable for their architecture and history: the Town Hall with its beautiful 19th century architecture; the elegant and green Place des Vosges with the Victor Hugo House where the writer lived; the George Pompidou Centre, a modern art museum with a resolutely iconoclastic and timeless style. But the 4th arrondissement is also home to many typical Parisian bistros and trendy bars, many quality restaurants, some of which are very famous and specialized in Israeli cuisine in the Jewish area of the Marais, and also several boutique hotels full of charm. As you have understood, the 4th arrondissement of Paris is a must in the capital.

When to go to Paris?

It goes without saying that Paris lives all year round, but if you are targeting a particular activity or event, you will have to choose your period. Here are some tips on when to visit Paris.

High tourist season: from May to September, tourists flock in great numbers. It is during this period that the climate is the mildest and many festivals and events take place, such as Roland Garros or the Fête de la Musique. Note that in August, Parisians leave the city for a holiday, which gives a strange atmosphere. Many shops are closed and only the tourist centres are lively. The Christmas holiday season is also very popular, especially for the illuminations and animated shop windows of department stores.

Medium tourist season: in October-November and from March to April, tourism slows down slightly, but not the influx. Indeed, Paris is a dense city and there are almost always people in the transport sector and in the centres of attraction

Low tourist season: there are not really any, except in January and February, months in which hotel rates fall slightly. Paris attracts tourists all the time!
