It's 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! One objective: find a little freshness, air-conditioned places, green spaces.... Here are a few ideas for outings and activities in and around Paris with children when the thermometer displays record temperatures.
Good to know: some water mistersvery 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 Musée d'Orsay or the Orangery Museum). All the exhibitions that we recommend are in air-conditioned places.
Air-conditioned, family-friendly places...
Water, water, water...
