Paris in August is ...

Paris in August. Paris au mois d'août.

It is decidedly not like the other eleven months.

What do you think of Paris in August?

Charles Aznavour had his opinion.



There are juillettistes who prefer to take vacation in July. And aoûtiens who prefer to be away in August. I've offered a few reflections of my own from time to time. Peacefulness. Parking. Men. In no particular order. And don't get me started on the OO vs. OOT pronunciation.

But being ever so open-minded, I value others' opinions. So, the Polly-Vous Francais Homegrown INSEE/Gallup Poll is asking you to fill in the blank.

Paris in August is _________________________.

I am a writer for BootsnAll Travel Network's Why Go Paris (www.parislogue.com) and I would love to discuss some ways for us to work together, but can't find you email anywhere on the site. I'd love if if you could shoot me an email at julie@bootsnall.com

I'll let you know next week! I'm working on an article about second marriages and second honeymoons and will be doing the tourist thing as well! I'm looking forward to it!

I adore Charles Aznavour. Being as my French is not up to par, I looked up mois and it means "month" but it also means "mold or mildew".. Is it that hot and wet in August? ;=}

I'll be there in October so hopefully it will be cooler but not as cold as it was in December.

@ Karen: mold or mildew is "moisi" in French.
So the word "mois" only means "month".

I have never been to Paris in AUgust... so I have no idea... however... I believe I would like to go to PAris ANYTIME of the year. Perhaps I NEED to live in Paris for a year to answer that question correctly!

I find the first two weeks of September to be the ideal time to come to Paris. Daytime temps still in the 70s. Paris is back to work. Not alot of rain.
