Summer is the most waited season in Europe. Music festivals around the corner, long and sunny days, people hanging out until late at night. When you live in Paris you feel the same: big tarrasses and rooftops waiting for you and your Spritz. Summer’s also the season when you just leave an opener in your bag ’cause you never know when a friend will call you to grab a beer (or rosé!) by the river banks of the Seine.
But there’s a word in french you may not know: canicule. It means oh my, why so f* warm? (kidding, but it’s not far from this). When the canicule is there, it means that you can really, really feel the summer between the narrow streets of the french capital. And doesn’t matter where you go, the hot weather will follow you. That’s why we prepared a list of the 6 parks open all night long (yeah babe, all night) for you to refresh that tanned skin.
- La Place des Vosges (4e)
One of the oldest squares in Paris, the Place des Vosges is in the center of the Marais. Click here and know to get there by bike.
- Le parc André Citroën (15e)
Maybe one of the most unknown spots in Paris, le Parc André Citroën is actually a very modernist and architecturally conceived parks in the capital. Click here and know to get there by bike.
- Le parc des Buttes Chaumont (19e)
On the top of the hill, you find this oasis of greeness and peace. But attention: it’s one of the parisian’s favorite parks, so its usually very crowded on hot days. Click here and know to get there by bike.
By clicking on the links all over the post, you’ll get the itnerary by bike (of course!) from Paris center (close do Centre Pompidou) to the parks we mentioned. Go park, #GoBikeParis!
