Summer is a great time to go and visit Paris. The chilled out, lazy long summer days are perfect for outdoor adventures, rejuvenated romance and just having a good time. There's so much to see and do in Paris and you can be there in just two hours with the Eurostar, so before you know it you'll be sipping on cocktails, browsing a farmers market, and just taking in the buzz that surrounds the beautiful city.

Paris has many green spaces dotted around so a perfect way to spend your day is having a picnic with friends and family. There are many events and festivals going on at the parks and if you're there between May and October, Paris offers the 'Musique côté jardins' event which brings together many genres of music such as classic, jazz, rock and electro.

Other fun things to do in Paris during your short break is to take a cruise down the river Seine or do a spot of shopping at the many high-end and boutique shops, many of which have sales during the summer. After spending all your money on shoes and clothes (Eurostar allows two suitcases per person) then enjoy many of the restaurants and cafés and dine al fresco like a true Parisian!

Prices shown below are for a 1 night stay per person including Eurostar travel, at selected times, based on two adults sharing one room on bed and breakfast basis (unless stated otherwise).
