This summer again, the happening holiday spot in the French capital is at Paris Plages
Whether you want to relax on a sun lounger under a blue parasol, go for a dip, play beach volleyball, show off your new shades or sarong, or just sip on a mint cordial by the water’s edge, Paris Plages is the place for you from 6 July to 1 September 2019! Two seaside resorts, on the banks of the Seine and the La Villette Canal Basin, are arranged for our collective delight. The edges of the Right and Left Banks of the Seine, along Voie Georges Pompidou, Port de Solférino and the Invalides, are fully revisited to make you feel like you’re at the seashore. Both banks are arranged with lawns, plenty of palm trees, picnic tables with free pop-up lending libraries, dance classes, a refreshment stand and ice cream sellers. Many festivities are organized throughout the summer holiday season in Paris. Fancy a swim in one of the most beautiful capital cities in the world? Well, now you can, at one of the three swimming areas at La Villette Canal Basin.
