Calendar of Good Deals and Events – JULY
What to do in Paris in July? Discover our selection of events in Paris. Do not forget of course “LE 14 juillet“!
Open Air Cinema – cinéma en plein air
Get to Parc de la Villette in the 19th arrondissement to make the most of the warm evenings and enjoy watching films for free in the open air from 13th July to 21st August. The theme for this year’s open-air cinema is ‘Dress Code’ giving its 26th anniversary a particular focus on film costumes.
Watch the UEFA final at the Euro Fan Zone
If you were not lucky enough to get tickets to see the games live in the stadium, you can still catch all of the games on the big screen at the Champ de Mars. Look out for the final on 10th July, but be sure to get there early due to the strict security at the entrance. Even if football is not your thing, the lively atmosphere is for all to enjoy!
There are fan zones in all the tournament cities so even if you are not located in Paris, you can still enjoy the football!
Tour de France
On Sunday 24th July the Tour de France will be completing the final stage of the competition along the Champs Elysées in Paris. The cyclists start in Chantilly and the day finishes with a final sprint down one of world’s most well-known roads. The tour begins on 2nd July and this will be the 103rd Tour de France.
