Are you still looking for a great holiday destination? Book your stay at the Hotel Royal Cardinal now and enjoy a summer break in Paris. Here are some great ideas for sunshine activities in the City of Light.
Embark on a boat trip
One of the best ways to see the wonders of Paris is to opt for a sightseeing cruise on the Seine with Bateaux Mouches. The famous Bateaux Mouches company offers an hour-long cruise on the second most beautiful avenue in the world (after the Champs Elysees). This 15-kilometre circuit of the world-famous waterway takes you beneath 37 bridges and through the heart of the capital to admire its most magnificent monuments and buildings.
Relax on the beaches of Paris
Beaches? In Paris? Yes, indeed; thanks to the Paris Plages (Paris Beaches) festival of beach resort fun, from July 6th to September 1st, 2019 you can enjoy sports activities, entertainment, culture and outdoor cinema on the forecourt of the Hôtel de Ville or pure moments of idleness on the Voie Georges Pompidou. For swimming and water sports, head to the Bassin de la Villette where a huge swimming pool and 4 open pools await you every day from 11:00 to 21:00!
Spend an evening watching movies in the open air
Want to see some great classics of French and international cinema in the open air? Then you’ll certainly want to check out the free outdoor cinema sessions that take place after nightfall in various locations throughout Paris from June to September. These include the Festival Silhouette in the Parc de la Butte du Chapeau Rouge, Toile Sous les Etoiles at the Château de Vincennes, Film Sous les Etoiles at the Domaine National de Saint-Cloud, Cinéma au Clair de Lune in several famous and historic Parisian locations, La Chaise et l'Ecran in various parts of the 11th arrondissement, and the famous Festival du Cinéma en Plein Air on the lawn of the Parc de la Villette. Experience the pleasure of watching great movies under the stars.
Discover the capital’s most unusual ice cream parlours
When the temperature rises, one of life’s greatest pleasures is a delicious and refreshing ice cream. But if you’re tired of the traditional vanilla, chocolate and strawberry flavours, we can suggest some truly original and awesome Parisian glaciers. Make a detour to Amorino and enjoy their flower-themed 100% natural ice cream treats. You’ll also be tempted by the flavours offered by La Tropicale close to the Place d'Italie, an Asian-inspired glacier offering ginger and saffron ice cream or a yuzu and Espelette pepper combination. At Glazed you’ll be amazed by explosive rock 'n’ roll specialties such as unsweetened but succulent black charcoal ice cream!
