Description

On the first weekend in July, an exotic flavour takes over Paris. The city bubbles over with tropical Caribbean life during the city's well-established Tropical Carnival. Organised by the Mairie de Paris together with the Fédération du Carnaval Tropical de Paris, the Tropical Caribbean puts the spotlight on music and dance, with groups from France and also many from the Antilles (Guadeloupe, Martinique, Reunion, Guyana).

Other countries are also honoured with a special theme for the event such as China, Brazil and Colombia in previous years.

In the early afternoon, over 4,000 dancers and a dozen floats from around the world participate in the parade through the Champs-Elysées. A fun and friendly event for all to enjoy.

Avenue des Champs-Élysées

Frequently described as ‘the world’s most beautiful avenue’, the Avenue des Champs-Élysées is a Paris must-see. Tourists and Parisians can be spotted strolling at any time of day or night and at any time of year along this iconic two-kilometre stretch between the Place de la Concorde and the Arc de Triomphe. Like the Eiffel Tower, the avenue is a symbol of Paris. It is lined with restaurants (l’Atelier Renault, Ledoyen etc.), luxury boutiques (Louis Vuitton, Mont-Blanc, Guerlain, Ferrari etc.), flagship stores (Banana Republic, Abercrombie, Sephora etc.) and nightclubs. It is also the setting each year for major events such as the Bastille Day military parade, the arrival of the Tour de France and the Christmas lights. Finally, the Avenue des Champs-Elysées has some of the top museums in Paris: the Grand Palais, the Petit Palais, the Palais de la Découverte and the Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton. Round off your visit by climbing all the way to the top of the Arc de Triomphe for a spectacular view of Paris!
