Paris14-Jun-2013FranceEveryone who visits Paris for the first time probably has the same list of major attractions to hit: The Louvre, Notre Dame, The Eiffel Tower, etc. In the last few years the Plage de Paris has taken over top billing. Mediterranean style beaches have appeared on the banks of the Seine, where one can laze on the beach, sunbathe, kids can play as if on the Cote dAzur. The attention to detail is superb, only the weather may be a problem. I, for one think the French have done it again and come up with a great idea. You can still go shopping for high fashion or just browse flea market and ejoy the beach on the same day. Paris used to shut down from late July to early September, it doesn't now.
