The 6th arrondissement in the centre of Paris is above all known for its mythical Saint-Germain-des-Près district. The latter has been marked by all the artists and writers frequentingit including Balzac, George Sand and Jean-Paul Sartre. Very marked by this artistic past, the 6th arrondissement has today many art galleries and historic cafés or brasseries, including the Café de Flore or Les Deux Magots. This district is also very touristy because of several remarkable sites: the Saint-André-des-Arts and de Buci streets, picturesque and paved with many typically Parisian restaurants and cafés; the Luxembourg Garden which extends itself magnificently over the 6th district and over the 5th; the beautiful Saint-Sulpice church; the very commercial street of Rennes. But the 6th district accommodates also many 4-star hotels and many French and world cuisine restaurants. There is no doubt that the 6th arrondissement of Paris has a lot to offer to visitors.

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!
