Easter weekend

Easter Monday is a public holiday that gives you an extra day off. Don't miss this opportunity to discover Paris and its many attractions on 1 April 2024. In this article, we'll give you some ideas for having fun on your own, as a couple or as a family.


For starters, why not opt for a stroll in one of the city's many parks and gardens? You'll be able to make the most of the budding spring and admire the magnificent landscapes in bloom. What's more, these green spaces are often the venue for various events and activities for young and old alike.


For those with a passion for culture, Paris is full of museums and art galleries that open their doors on this day. From major national museums to small independent galleries, there's something to suit all tastes and budgets. Some establishments also offer exclusive temporary exhibitions, not to be missed during your visit. Examples include the Louvre, the Centre Pompidou, the Musée de Montmartre and the Musée du Luxembourg.

If you're more interested in architecture and heritage, Easter Monday is the perfect opportunity to visit the capital's historic monuments and iconic sites. Most of these sites offer guided or audio tours to help you learn more about their history. For example, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Basilique du Sacré-Cœur, the Panthéon...


For the little ones, why not spend a fun-filled day outdoors as a family, with the added bonus of some tasty surprises to take home. A great egg hunt to delight children in the capital. We've got an egg hunt in the Passage du Havre that's unusual and free for children aged 3 to 10! Registration is now open, but beware: places are snapping up faster than the chocolate bunnies!


The second venue is the Jardin d'Acclimatation, which takes place over the weekend of Sunday 31 March and Monday 1 April 2024. There are also the park's historic attractions, which are 100% kid-friendly and suitable for all ages (even the youngest), the farm with its animals, the shows that take place all day long... Not to mention that this beautiful green space is perfect for a walk that's neither too long nor too short with the kids!  It's free, open to all and there's no need to book, although you will need to pay the garden entrance fee to take part.


In conclusion, Easter Monday in Paris offers a multitude of opportunities to enjoy yourself and make the most of this extra day of rest.
