Paris has and always will be one of the most popular destinations for people of all ages, including families. This isn’t only because of the ease of access and history, but also because of the food, wine, culture, architecture as well as the never ending list of things to do and places to visit. What people don’t often consider is how much the city changes over winter. It goes from a hot, bustling metropolis to a much quieter, fun, romantic and even mysterious place.

Enjoy the quiet streets
I’m sure we’ve all seen at least one film that has a scene in some quiet, snowy Parisian street. They’re perfect for peaceful strolls, snow wars with the kids or romantic getaways.
Museums are all year round
None of the museums care what season it is when it comes to being open. The Louvre looks particularly great when the ground around it is snowy, and there are fifty nine others than can visited in an around Paris, all with one ticket.
Celebrate Fashion Week
The first few weeks in January make Paris host to two fashion events, Fashion week and the Winter Soldes. These periods make Paris the fashion capital of the world, featuring all the big Parisian names such as YSL, Chanel and Louis Vuitton.
Chinese New Year
Not what you’d expect from Paris, but they really like to celebrate it. Festivals and parades can be found throughout the city, featuring firework and dancing dragons, all against the backdrop of the beautiful Paris architecture.
Stay in for wine tasting
Wine is the lifeblood of Paris, so it’s no surprise that there are tasting events for every month of the year. Tasting events are held across the city, but some of the best wine bars are Albion, Le Dauphin and Le Verre Volé.
