If you love Christmasy feels and all that goes with cold weather (mulled Wine, Christmas markets) then winter is the best time to visit Paris. The temperatures vary from 0C° up to 10C°, and the city has less than 6 hours of light. I’ll recommend visiting Paris before Christmas. Indeed, January and February are the coldest months in Paris. Snow in Paris is rare, however, it can snow during a couple of days in February or March.
