Bad weather can be a real bummer when traveling. Your outdoor activities are cancelled, your picnics are moved indoors and your tan is non existent.

Yet Paris is one city that is truly magical in the rain. There is something charming and romantic about walking over the Sienne, umbrella in hand, staring at the Eiffel Tower. The city doesn’t stop when it rains. Grab a coffee at a local shop and let the Parisseans hypnotize you with their accents. Walk around the Tuilerie Gardens and marvel as the flowers look more magnificent with raindrops dancing across them. Get lost exploring Montparnasse and the Latin Quarter and see the Paris of Hemmingway’s A Moveable Feast.

There is so much to do in Paris and doing it in the rain makes it even more memorable.
