“Paris in Summer: the sky is brilliant blue, the lawns and gardens verdant and the city is awash with sunlight”–Paul Ebeling

The city is at its picturesque best in the Summer and every turn offers a photo-op for the click-happy! Summer in Paris lasts between June to August and is one of the hottest and wettest seasons of the yr. It is also a time when the world descends on Paris to explore and enjoy its many offerings. The city plays host to Summer music festivals, national holiday parades and food festivals.

The Eiffel Tower is open till midnight during summer nights, giving you ample time to go to the top of the iconic landmark. The Eiffel Tower is a symbol of Paris and no trip to the city is complete without a stop here. A great way to make your visit to the Eiffel Tower more memorable is to enjoy a meal at the restaurants right at the Top. There are special events at the Eiffel Tower in summer like the fireworks display for Bastille Day (14th July) and flag hoisting on Liberation Day (25th August). After your visit, take a break and relax at Parc du Champs de Mars, a beautiful park in front of the Eiffel Tower and enjoy the sight of the Iron Lady.

Here is our guide on what to expect in Paris in Summer, the places to visit and how to make the most of your holiday, as follows:

For over two millennia, the river Seine has witnessed the growth of Paris, right from Roman settlements to the French Revolution and now as a cosmopolitan city. The river and landmarks along its banks have accorded it a UNESCO World Heritage Site status. A river cruise is the best way to explore these landmarks and you will spot many like Eiffel Tower, Grand Palais, Louvre, Notre Dame, Invalides, La Conciergerie, Place de La Concorde and the Statue of Liberty. Summer is the best time for a river cruise as you can enjoy the open-air boats which offer unhindered views of the riverbanks. You can also upgrade your cruise with delicious French meals.

The Palace of Versailles was the official royal residence of France for just over 100 years; it was built at such a grand scale that it soon became one of the largest palace complexes in the world and an inspiration for many royal residences. The palace is about 40 km from the centre of Paris and is a great day trip destination with thousands of vacation villas available for rent. While the palace is open throughout the year, its Royal Gardens are summer’s highlight. These gardens are spread over 800 hectares and are landscaped in classic French style with manicured gardens, statues and grottoes. During summer, a show is organized in these gardens with a musical fountain. You can also make a quick pit stop at Giverny, to visit the estate of celebrated artist Monet.

Over 10 million people visit the Louvre each yr and it is not a surprise why! As the world’s largest art museum, the Louvre has over 38,000 objects dating back to prehistoric times. It is now designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and while most go there to see the Mona Lisa, there is so much more the Louvre has to offer. In summer, the museum is full of tourists navigating their way through some of the finest artwork collections in the world. In 2020, the Body and Soul Sculpture exhibition will run at the Louvre and feature sculptures from Donatello, Michelangelo and more.

While Paris in Summer boasts a thriving nightlife, a traditional way to enjoy the city is by going for a cabaret show. Parisian cabarets have gone from local stage entertainment to big budget extravaganzas which draw visitors from across the world. The city hosts four popular cabaret shows – Moulin Rouge, Le Lido, Crazy Horse and Paradis Latin. Moulin Rouge is the home of the modern French Cancan dance, while Le Lido is a mega show featuring world-class performers with a variety of acts. Paradis Latin is storytelling at its best, while Crazy Horse is the most sensual of all.
