August Events in Paris: Rock en Seine, Festival Silhouette, Restaurants Open & More

HiP Paris Blog, La Plage de GlazArtLaPlage de Glazart

August in Paris gets a bad rap amongst the visiting community. The city is dead, your favorite places are closed… but this norm is starting to change, with many more restaurants remaining open for parts of the month.
