Cultural visits during the Easter vacations in Paris A stay in Paris is always an opportunity to visit the great classics and the greatest monuments. But it is also possible to embellish your next spring vacations with cultural outings around temporary events.

Leisure activities and workshops in Paris during the 2023 school vacations School vacations are often an opportunity to share family moments, and for that, the capital has no shortage of resources. Between creative workshops, gardening initiation and cooking classes, young and old can enjoy discovering certain skills during unforgettable experiences. Take advantage of your days off to sign up for one of the events for kids or the whole family.

Get some fresh air in the green spaces of Paris After visiting the capital’s exhibitions and participating in a creative workshop, it’s nice to be able to walk in the fresh air and stretch your legs. It’s a good thing, because the Parisian parks come alive in spring, and offer an ideal setting for a walk. Alone or in charming company, take the time to discover the awakening of nature in the Jardin des Plantes, the Jardin des Tuileries, or the Jardin du Luxembourg. Of course, the addresses do not stop there, and other sites, less known but just as charming, are favourable to the stroll: the garden of the Rodin museum, the Bagatelle garden… Your walks in these Parisian green spaces are an opportunity to discover the biodiversity of the place, as well as some works of art, statues and fountains, scattered along the paths of the parks and gardens.

Don’t forget to book an exclusive visit to the gardens of the castles of Rambouillet, Maisons or Champs-sur-Marne.

Its immense forest is the occasion for beautiful walks, and many activities are proposed throughout the spring school vacations (storytelling, dog sledding, guided tour of the gardens of the castle of Fontainebleau…).
