July is an exciting and fun month in Paris! Whether you’re soaking up the sun at the Paris Plages, dancing away at the Carnaval Tropical or enjoying a picnic and movie in the park, you’ll find plenty of ways to relax and enjoy Paris in the summer.


 

Bastille Day Parade & Fireworks

14 July 2016

With a national spirit similar to the Fourth of July in America or Canada Day, the celebrations for Bastille Day are some of the most extravagant of the year. Enjoy the impressive military parade down the Champs-Élysées and then at night find the perfect spot to watch the amazing fireworks display around the Eiffel Tower. If you’re staying in one of our Paris Perfect vacation rentals with an Eiffel Tower view, you’ll enjoy front row seats for one of the most spectacular fireworks displays you’ll ever see!
