WHEN TO GO TO ILE-DE-FRANCE ?

Paris, with many famous sights, like the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower, is often said to be at its most attractive in the spring. It is quieter in the summer, however, when many city dwellers choose to head south. A theatrical festival takes place in the town of Étampes in June and a Baroque music festival is staged in September in the town of Pontoise, north-west of Paris.
