November tends to be one of the calmer months in Paris as the city slowly starts to get ready for the festive season. As the temperature drops, the cafés and restaurants become more inviting and Paris’s top spas offer a welcome respite from the cold. Smaller crowds make this a perfect time to get ahead with your Christmas shopping, and the new opening from Louis Vuitton at place Vendôme is a great place to start. Galeries Lafayette will also be a popular destination this November and will add spectacular Christmas cheer with its annual Christmas lights. This is also the penultimate month for concept store Colette, which shuts its doors this December. Take a look at the best things to see and do in Paris this November here.
