    Paris Plages 2019 : The best way to spend a sunny afternoon in Paris

    There is no better way to spend a sunny afternoon in Paris than to lounge around in the city heat and chill out with a drink and a good book. While many locals will automatically head to the shade of a city park, there is a more interesting alternative this summer.

    Paris Plages 2019 brings the facilities of the beach to the banks of the Seine, City Hall and the Bassin de la Villette. The former will be popular with workers because of the accessibility, views and the ice-cream facilities. The latter has a family-friendly vibe as it is right by the pool.

    You can choose your location and settle into one of the comfortable shaded spots for a while. Many are sure to develop a favourite site, and maybe even a favourite chair for the summer. It will be a sad sight to see them go when September comes around. But, autumn might not have the same weather and temperatures.
