The pre-eminent cultural capital features a number of major exhibitions that stretch over the summer season, from the vaunted halls of the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay to other museums in the region, while local treasures such as the Chateau Versailles, the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte and the medieval city of Provins offer an impressive line-up of events.

A selection of film and music festivals featuring rock, jazz, electro, opera and classical music are also held throughout the country, flooding monuments, historic sites and terraces with visitors all summer long, day and night.

The restaurants and hotels open up their terraces, the rooftops offer unique views of Paris and its iconic monuments, the cabaret spirit roars back to life on the water’s edge, and vacant lots and other alternative venues offer fun times and celebration.

In the markets, the stalls teem with seasonal fruits and vegetables, while the ice cream parlours churn out their latest selection of sweet and refreshing desserts. The parks and gardens reveal their luscious, dazzling beauty and roll out the green carpet to host memorable picnics, while leisure parks, beaches and outdoor pools give the region some summer flavour on the water’s edge…

The sunny days are also perfect for the more outdoorsy types, with rock climbing excursions in Fontainebleau Forest and around the countryside, along with the most beautiful golf courses and greens in the region. If you love hiking or cycling, there’s plenty to do for you as well. And did you know that Paris Region is home to four major cycling routes?
