When To Visit

France is geographically diverse ranging from a fairly mild and wet weather in places such as Lille in the north to the warmer and dryer Mediterranean climate in the south east along the French Riviera and across Languedoc-Roussillon towards the Spanish border.

However, the French cities are an old year round destination and depending upon the time of year and the city, you can plan excursions to the beach resorts during the summer or go skiing in the French Alps or French Pyrenees during the cold and snowy winter months.
