Autumn adds another dimension to an already beautiful city. The Seine is extremely atmospheric at dawn or even at dusk when a fine mist hangs over the water

By Maria Savva

The weather in Paris in autumn can be quite changeable. Average temperatures range from 17°C (62°F) to 8°C (46°F). It's not unusual to have warm, sunny days in early fall, but evenings can be chilly, so pack a few extra layers. And there are often a few rainy days, especially in November, so bring a light jacket or an umbrella.

1.Take a walk in a park

Autumn adds another dimension to an already beautiful city. The Seine is extremely atmospheric at dawn or even at dusk on cool autumn days when a fine mist hangs over the water. Along the river bank you will find stalls with roasted chestnuts. But for the best Parisian fall colors head to the city's parks.

2. Go to city fairs

The réntree is also the beginning of a new cultural season in Paris, when new plays and exhibitions begin. The annual Fall Festival, which runs from September until the end of the year, began in 1972 and includes various theater, dance, musical, film and art events and performances in over 40 different venues.

Paris also hosts an annual International Exhibition of Contemporary Art (FIAC) every autumn (October 20-23, 2022). The exhibition brings together the work of more than 1500 artists from around the world, from big names to rising stars. The exhibition's main venue is the glass-domed Grand Palais, but it also extends to the Petit Palais, the Musée Eugène Delacroix, the Tuileries Gardens, the Place Vendôme and the Place de la Concorde.

3.Visit museums

Autumn is also a good time to see some of Paris' museums. They often start new temporary exhibitions, but also start to quiet down in autumn after being full of visitors in summer. The Louvre is never quiet, but you can minimize your waiting time by either booking a skip-the-line* ticket or visiting on Friday evenings, when the museum stays open until 9.45pm.

Paris also has many other museums to explore. There are the classics, such as the Musée d'Orsay with its Impressionist paintings and the Rodin Museum with its sculpture garden. Or lesser-known spots like the Musée Cognacq Jay, an art museum in a mansion in the Marais. And for something more quirky, you can go on a tour of the Paris sewers at the Musée des Égouts

4. Drink hot chocolate

Fall is prime hot chocolate season, and Paris makes some of the best in the world. One of the best-known spots in town for a good chocolat chaud is the Angelina tea room, with its beautiful Belle Epoque building on Rue De Rivoli. People line up out the door for a cup of their specialty thick chocolate blend made from a secret recipe that uses a rich blend of cocoa beans sourced from Niger, Ghana and Ivory Coast.

5.Celebrate the wine harvest with the locals

The cooler autumn evenings are a perfect excuse for a good glass of red wine and there are a few special events every autumn in Paris to celebrate the new wine harvest. First there's the Fête des Vendanges, a five-day celebration of the grape harvest centered around Montmartre's one remaining vineyard every October (October 5-9, 2022).

The streets around the Basilica Sacre- Coeur is full of food and drink stalls and there are many special events. You can take a tour of the Clos Montmartre vineyard and bid on a bottle from the latest vintage at the wine auction.
