Today is the 1st of July and with those words, ideas of beach, sun and farniente already put us into the universe of holidays! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, summer is at the door! And because in Paris, only beach was missing for a perfect Summer offer, it is done! Paris Plages returns from July 8th to September 3rd and enchant our city atmosphere. Hotel des 2 Continents offers you a tour of the activities planned during the two months of the event which is bigger and bigger.
Have you ever imagined taking a book, a hat and sit on a deckchair on the banks of the Seine River? The banks of the Seine are metamorphosed by the sea with fine sand, palm trees, and umbrellas! Relaxation is a must this summer along our tranquil river. A little thirst? Go to a small beach hut … As every year, a mobile library welcomes the youngest in search of exciting pages for their holidays, and petanque grounds to seal the scenery.
In the la Villette basin, bathing and water sports are on the spotlight. From the 17th of July, three swimming pools will refresh both young and old on the quai de Loire of the Canal de l’Ourcq. And with high temperatures, the place will be highly appreciated. Boat, canoe or simple bathing, the north of Paris promises well deserved holidays to Parisians as to tourists.
The forecourt of Hotel de Ville (City Hall) is also requisitioned for Paris Plages. An athletic track will be installed for the occasion! Yes, you read it! And do not miss from July 6th to 8th, to Festival Fnac Live Paris! The forecourt of the City Hall will become a great concert scene and the building’s lounges as well. Guests such as Benjamin Biolay, Julien Clerc, Julien Doré and Jay-Jay Johanson are expected.
Hotel des 2 Continents wishes you all a very nice Summer in Paris!
