Paris Plage (mid- July to mid –August)

Imagine a beach in the very heart of Paris.

Every summer over the last few years, Paris undergoes a complete metamorphosis: overnight, express ways along the river banks are turned into pedestrian lanes to become a fully- fledged seaside resort.

 

La Nuit des Musées (Museums night)

Every year towards the middle of May, this special night event offers an interesting and sometimes surprising programme. Permanent collections known to be austere on occasion suddenly gain a new dimension under a well-orchestrated light show.

This is an event of national and even European appeal. Museums are open till very late at night and together with a number of events taking place outside, contribute to
a very different perception of Paris.

 

Sporting events :

Roland Garos International Tennis Championship (May)

Tour de France arrival on the Champs-Elysées (July)

 

July 14, National Day:

Spectacular military parade coming down the whole length of the “Champs” towards the presidential tribune situated on Place de la Concorde.

 

December 31 :

Christmas illuminations on the Champs-Elysées. Traffic is suspended the whole night to allow Parisians to celebrate in style the arrival of the new year.
