Your summer programme in Paris
Posted in Paris le 1 July 2023
Paris in summer offers Parisians and visitors alike an exciting and diverse programme of activities. Cultural, sporting, relaxing… There’s plenty to delight solo travellers, families, or lovers on a romantic trip. Here are some ideas you can try while staying at the Hotel Beaugrenelle Saint-Charles.
Festivals and history
During the summer, Paris hosts many festivals of all kinds. Of course, music is well represented with the Chopin festival, Jazz in Paris and the multitude of stars presented at Lollapalooza, Solidays and Rock en Seine. Summer is for watching films in the open air and the Cinéma en Plein Air festival at La Villette is always popular. If you love history, take the half-hour train ride to Versailles for the Fountains Night Show. Every Saturday evening, the basins and fountains of the Palace of Versailles sparkle with dancing water while music and light fill the groves. This enchantment reaches a grand climax with a fabulous fireworks display.
Beach pleasures in an urban setting
In Paris, the beach is not so far away! Thanks to the Paris Plages celebration of beach culture, the capital gets a seaside resort vibe every year. On the quays of the Seine, deckchairs are installed on the lawns, palm trees and parasols provide comforting shade and children and teenagers can discover the many games and workshops available. The Bassin de la Villette is the place to go for water fun. Swimmers can enjoy dedicated areas, including paddling pools for the little ones, while the main body of water is filled with paddle boats, canoes, pedal boats and Polynesian canoes. It’s like a fresh and fun beach resort holiday in the heart of Paris!
