Summer is the perfect time to discover Paris by bike
Publish on Tuesday, 10 July 2018 in Visit Paris
The most beautiful city in the world, Paris shines like a jewel in the sun. To see the city to its best advantage, you need to get on a bike and explore its charming streets and picturesque neighbourhoods up close. Experience Paris like a Parisian this summer by opting for a bicycle as your mode of transport.
Romantic or unusual bike rides in Paris
In the saddle, you’ll be able to examine the most famous monuments of the capital from all angles and lose yourself in parts of the city that are generally off the beaten track. With your nose in the warm summer breeze and a smile on your face, you can ride along the cobbled streets that are so typical of the Marais district, then find freshness on the banks of the Seine. Explore the Left Bank, browse the bookstores of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and check out the Bibliothèque François Mitterrand, then stop on a whim and sit quietly on a café terrace with a refreshing drink. When night falls, the lights of the Avenue des Champs-Elysées, the Opera, and Montmartre will charm you.
Cheer the arrival of the heroes of the Tour de France
The world’s greatest cyclists have again been tested by the Tour de France. On July 29th, these magnificent sportsmen finally reach their goal and cross the finish line on the most beautiful avenue in the world, the Champs-Élysées. Come participate in the jubilation and cheer these extraordinary athletes! Many events will be held under the Arc de Triomphe to celebrate the occasion.
Book a comfortable and spacious room at the Hotel de la Paix, in the 15th arrondissement, to be your haven of serenity during your Parisian break.
