Ideas for outings and activities when it is very hot in Paris

It is the heat wave! Whether you are Parisians or just passing through for a few days to visit and enjoy Paris, you do not want to stay locked up (in a hotel or elsewhere) and we understand you! A goal : find some freshnessair-conditioned places, green spaces? Here are a few ideas for outings and activities in and around Paris with children when the thermometer reads record temperatures.

Good to know: some water mistersare installed here and there in Paris (like in Paris beach); most of the major Parisian museums are air-conditioned (as the Louvre, the Georges Pompidou Centerthe Orsay Museum or the Orangery Museum). All the exhibitions that we recommend are in air-conditioned places.

Air-conditioned, family-friendly places...

Freshness guaranteed...

Water, water, water...
