Paris in June makes for a great plan for exploring the City of Lights. The weather brings with it gloriously warm days. One can expect a mix of both sun and clouds, with little to no rain or humidity. The rose blooms only add to the already rather enticing proposition.

Other than the pleasant weather there are other reasons too which make visiting Paris in June a great idea. These include plenty of exhibits, and the lineups of operas, ballet performances, and opera performances too. Of course, this goes without saying that these come as additions to the evergreen attractions like the Eiffel Tower and tours on the Seine River. We are sure all this has whetted your appetite for adventure, so here is a nifty blog that will help you out in your upcoming travels.
