  3. Practical guide to lockdown in Paris Region

Offering virtual tours of exhibitions and monuments, shopping and gastronomy in “click & collect” mode, or on your landing, food markets and outings to parks and gardens near you, Paris Region is here to support you throughout the lockdown.

The second wave of Covid-19 is spreading throughout Europe, and tourist activity is once again grinding to a halt on an almost worldwide scale. As of Thursday 29 October, the Paris Region is back in lockdown for a minimum of 4 weeks.

We have been collectively instructed to remain at home, telework, and travel only if authorised to do so. In other words, it’s hello again to travel certificates and trips out in the immediate vicinity of our homes. You can download your travel permit from the French government website or via the “Tous anti covid” application.

Want to escape? Take a breath of fresh air in the parks, gardens and forests near you.

Fancy a virtual tour? Enjoy the best of Paris Region culture from your sofa.

Virtual tours of museums and exhibitions, digital explorations of monuments in the Paris Region, whether you’re on your own, in a couple or with your family: a rich variety of online resources is available, offering culture, learning and entertainment. Our guides take you on a unique cultural adventure from your own sofa.

Lockdown: make the most of virtual tours
