Paris Plage 2012 from 20th July – 19th August

A Parisian experience, Our favourite things

Paris Plage is a bit different this year (and don’t even get me started on the weather), with part of the traditional Seine site closed and being reworked for autumn, only two sites instead of three (the one in the 13th arrondissement has disappeared) and more and more sponsor logos.

Despite all that, there’s still a lot to merit a visit: a 4-day music festival, the Olympic Games live on a big screen, 800 metres of sandy beach, a temporary library, Tai Chi lessons, traditional pétanque for free, and even some new stuff!

Here’s all the info…
