Paris is one of the most popular tourist attractions, with almost 30 million tourists each year. Aside from entertainment tourism, the city is a popular location for conferences and several big fairs and exhibitions. Famous architectural masterpieces, museums housing priceless items, historic and cultural neighborhoods, retail malls... all of this has attracted people to the "city of light" on a regular basis. The buildings and locations of the suburbs contribute to the overall attractiveness of Paris.
There are four seasons in Paris. The most lovely tourist season is late spring (April) to early summer (June) and around autumn, because this is when Paris is at its most magnificent.
If you visit Paris in the spring, you will undoubtedly be enchanted by the romantic splendor of the city. This is also the French people's favorite season. Spring in France is pinked by flowers all over the street, on balconies, and in small dwellings, as it is in every other country. You'll see Paris as if it were a scene from a movie: people in thin robes sitting in an outside café sipping coffee and gazing at the streets.
The weather is good in the summer. Because this is temperate water, the warmest period of the day only reaches 32 °C. People often congregate at public swimming pools and artificial seas at this time to cool off, sunbathe, and enjoy cool drinks to beat the heat. The only drawback is that during this time of year, people throng to the area, making it extremely busy.
Here are the best spots to visit and have fun in Paris that should not be overlooked!1. The Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower is number one.
The city's famed Eiffel Tower is perhaps the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Paris. While enjoying a picnic beneath the majestic 276-meter-high structure is a fun experience, the panoramic views from the top are one of the nicest aspects of the tower! You'll be able to see all of the city's streets and landmarks, including the Sacré-Coeur, the Arc de Triomphe, and many others.
P.S. There is an elevator that takes you to the very top of the tower. And it's understandable that many tourists desire to see a renowned sight like the Eiffel Tower.

Even though it will still be highly expensive, it will most likely be around a third less than in the evening. It's worth noting that in some restaurants, the tip is already included in the bill, so you won't have to spend any additional money on service.
