February school holidays

I see that school zones B and C are on holiday at the end of February into March. We're going to be in Paris for a week at that time. Any idea how it will affect crowds? I was thinking that we were going to avoid them due to off season. 😒

There are always crowds in Paris. But the French school holidays themselves shouldn't have too much of an effect, as folks who are able like to go skiing during those holidays. But there are always lots of Italians and Spanish around at all times!

End of Feb and into March probably is the lowest time for anyone to be here throughout the year though. It's just that there are ALWAYS tourists here. It will be fine!

In addition, there will be an estimated 30% additional Asian tourists.
Be prepared and go to a hotel.

I've been to Paris in the 2nd half of February and LOVED it. I wouldn't call winter off season as the high culture is in the swing of things.
