That said, the summer months certainly aren’t unbearable—expect 80s and 90s with relatively high humidity, but pleasant nights in the 60s. You can spend the day in air-conditioned galleries and museums and hit the streets at night for dancing, dining and festivals.
And winter isn’t without its upside as well. Snow is possible, and days often approach freezing temperatures, but the streets certainly don’t go dead on account of the cold. The Festival of Lights still brings out the locals and brings in the tourists and the city, as it is the gateway to the Alps, also attracts its share of skiers during the other winter months.
