What to do in Paris in February

February kicks off with La Chandeuleur (crêpe day) on February 2nd. I listed my favorite spots for crêpes in Paris in this post. Valentine’s Day in Paris isn’t as big of a deal as in is in the US. You will find bakeries making heart shaped pastries but mostly just the day before and day of. If you are looking for places to propose in Paris that isn’t the Eiffel Tower. You can check out this post from Lily Heise.


Madonna will be at The Grand Rex starting on February 18 – 23. You can buy tickets here.

Paris in February can be cold, damp, rainy and occasionally snowy. Make sure to dress for the weather. My guide to What to Pack for Paris in the Winter will help with this.

I love my Blondo boots, for this reason, they are stylish, comfortable walking shoes and they are waterproof. There is nothing worse than getting caught in the rain with the wrong shoes.

Make sure to pack a warm coat. Long coats are very in right now so you will be right on-trend.

Thick Blanket Scarfs

If you are looking to visit museums in Paris, I highly recommend The Paris Museum Pass. It saves you money and time as you get to skip the lines. This includes entrance to The Louvre, a boat road on the Seine, the Arc de Triumph which has some of the best views in Paris and Versailles. Prices for the Pass go up in March so I would highly recommend buying it now. Plus, you have an entire year to activate it so you can plan ahead. You can collect the passes anytime for Free in Paris or pay 10 euros to have them delivered worldwide with 15 days’ notice.
