10 Reasons to Visit Paris in November


NOVEMBER IN PARIS

I feel as though through sheer fortune I’ve stumbled across a graphic persuasive argument, that testifies to why braving a frosty November in Paris is worthwhile. Wearing five layers, consisting of merino thermals, lambs wool knits, and down filled outerwear I was well and truly prepared for the thirty minute meander from Place de Concorde to the end of avenue Champs Elysée, pause for the obligatory Arc de Triomphe shot, and then wander back again. What I wasn’t prepared for was my inability to tie my own shoe laces. Bending in the middle was an impossible feat, as layer upon layer I had transformed myself into the “Michelin-Man”. That being said, what the November cold stole, Paris made up for. Here’s ten reasons why Paris in November makes sense.
