Paris Respire was an initiative developed by Paris City Hall to open the fast road to cross Paris on the Right Bank of the Seine for bikes, rollers and pedestrians every Sunday. Paris respire has been shut down on March 2017.
Nowadays the Voie Georges Pompidou fast road aren't opened for cars anymore and the Right Bank of the Seine is strictly reserved for pedestrians, bikes and rollers.
Pretty good news, the Seine Riverside is now open 7 days a week for chilling; check Parc des Rives de Seine for more information ;)
Nothing special planned on Sunday afternoon?
You just want to relax after Saturday night crazy party!!
We have good news for you!
Some parts of the Seine riverside are especially open for bikes and pedestrians on Sunday from 9:00 to 17:00.
So you can go with your friends for a refreshing walk along the river on George Pompidou road, Rive Droite bank of the Seine, from Bastille to Tuilerie's Garden.
It's a cool opportunity to discover Paris from a place usually reserved for cars! ;)
