SPECIAL CANICULE: where to find freshness in Paris?
It's the heat wave! Whether you're a Parisian or just passing through for a few days to visit and enjoy Paris, you don't want to stay cooped up (in a hotel or elsewhere) and we understand you! One objective: find a little freshness, air-conditioned places, green spaces…. Here are a few ideas for outings and activities in Paris and the surrounding area with children when the thermometer displays record temperatures.
Good to know: some water sprayersvery refreshing are installed here and there in Paris (like in Paris beach); most large Parisian museums are air-conditioned (as the Louvre, the Georges Pompidou Center, The Orsay museum or the Orangery Museum).
