I will be in Paris over Easter this year. Is this a busy time or do lots of people leave the capital to holiday elsewhere? What I really need to know is whether this timing will make it harder or easier to get into places like The Louvre. I will be staying in Le Marais. Are there are any places that should definitely be on my agenda at this time of the year? I only have 5 days.
Paris at Easter

The saturday before Paques is hugely busy with people buying food, drink, flowers, and eggs (bonbons), but the sunday it's deserted as the Parisians spend time with their family - except in the Marais where the shops are usually open. Since the weather is so good now, enjoy the outdoors - the Tuleries, Parc Luxembourg, etc. Should be a good time for the museums.
