Between visiting the Eiffel Tower, Montmartre and the Château and the Bois de Vincennes, you will surely want to fit a couple of key events that you may not have previously considered into your Parisian itinerary. White Nights and the Paris Motor Show are major events of the season in their respective fields and the chances are that you will thoroughly enjoy either of them.
While Paris is often seen as the capital of fashion, luxury, culture and gastronomy, it’s also a stronghold of design. Strolling along the cobbled streets of the Marais, near the Hotel Jacques de Molay, you’ll see that the galleries of contemporary art are shoulder to shoulder with numerous shops displaying the creations of many talented designers from around the world. Want to discover the hottest new talents and feel the pulse of the latest trends in decoration, furnishings and interior fittings? Then take advantage of Paris Design Week to explore the capital and visit the essential Salon Maison et Objet, one of the top trade shows of its kind in Europe, which will take place from September 8th to 12th, 2017, at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre.
Located in the heart of the Marais district of Paris, the Hotel Jacques de Molay is ideal for discovering the rich heritage of the capital. Add to the lustre of your stay in Paris with a generous helping of sequins and glamour by including in your itinerary a visit to the Palais Galliera and its fabulous exhibition dedicated to Dalida. From April 27th to August 13th, 2017, this spotlight on her wardrobe pays tribute to the Egyptian-born singer who passed away thirty years ago.
The Summer Sales, Paris Plages, and Solidays: the agenda of this summer in Paris is already full to bursting. Deckchairs and loungers await you on the banks of the Seine for a relaxing session in the sun between shopping sprees. But before that you’ll want to head to Longchamp Racecourse on June 23rd, 24th and 25th for the 18th edition of the Solidays music festival.
