Enjoy Swimming In the Sun

Do you want to focus on your tan as you float under the sun? You may be shocked to hear there are lots of open-air swimming pools in Paris! The breathtaking Piscine Keller and Piscine Josephine Baker with a riverside view are public pools with roofs which open on warm, sunny days.
Outside Paris, the Piscine Patinoire Boulogne-Billancourt and the Center Aquatique de Neuilly-sur-Seine have fantastic pools and kiddo water slides.

Take In the Parisian Canals

One of the most enjoyable things to do in Paris during the summers is a stroll through the canals of Paris. Canal Saint-Martin is a cultural centre and one of the most popular locations in Paris, while Bassin de La Villette – Canal de l’Ourcq has a more rural atmosphere and is a perfect spot to take a break from stargazing.

All summer, kids and adults will enjoy a typical fair while snorkeling at fair classics like cotton candy, toffee apples and ice cream.

Take your Family to the  Les Pestacles Festival

For those who are traveling with children, this is the activity your whole family (especially children) will enjoy. On Wednesdays of June to September yearly, the Parc Floral hosts the Les Pestacles Festival, where children of 2 years and above (and the entire family) can enjoy street arts music, opera, circus performances, dance and much more.
There are lots of things to pick from kids and adults don’t have problems choosing the right activity to enjoy.

Soak in the views of Paris from the Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower is open until midnight during the summertime, allowing you plenty of time to get to the top of the famous landmark. The Eiffel Tower is an emblem of Paris, so no visit to the city is complete without visiting here. A perfect way to make your visit to the Eiffel Tower more enjoyable is to share a lunch in the restaurants at the top.

The French National Day concert holding in Paris

Summer in France means French National Day on 14 July. Like it has been for years now, a festival is being conducted at the Champs-de-Mars, at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, so you can party even before the sunsets.
Come and listen to the various classical music bands performing in a festive and warm environment for the day. This is the safest way to wait until later at night, when the so-called fireworks are set off right away, on the Trocadero!
If you are planning to attend the French National Day concert in Paris, you can contact your immigration advisor for help.

Visit the Palace of Versailles

The Palace of Versailles has been the official royal residence of France for more than 100 years; it was designed on such a grand scale and it quickly became one of the largest palace complexes in the world and a source of inspiration for many royal residences. The Palace is situated about 40 km from the center of Paris and is a perfect day trip destination.

But make sure you prepare correctly and get regular weather alerts. Do bring lots of water to keep you hydrated on long walks and wear lightweight layers to make it easier to strip – or attach – as the weather and temperature varies during the day.
So there you go with the 8 different things you can do in Paris during summer.
