Join 25,000 runners as they run the 16.2 kilometres between what are perhaps the two most iconic monument in Paris — from the Eiffel Tower out to the Chateau de Versailles. Louis XVI never would have imagined that one day thousands of citizens would dream of running from Paris to Versailles for fun and not for a revolution.
The run starts at Quai Branly, next to the Eiffel Tower, and follows Grenelle towards Parc André Citroën and towards the route Royale in the Meudon forest towards the finish line at the Chateau de Versailles.

Founded in 1972, the Paris Autumn Festival celebrates contemporary arts and embraces all forms — visual arts, dance, theatre, music, and cinema. Throughout autumn and early winter, the festival features more than fifty events at venues throughout Paris.
One of our favorite things to do in September is to spend a day sampling champagne in the area it comes from. The Champagne Region is just over an hour from Paris and it's easy to get to with day tours that start out in the center of the city. Spend the day focusing on the bubbly as you visit both small producers and grands maisons. Includes lunch and transportation.
These are two very special days in Paris and a very popular event among Parisians. It's the one time in the year when the public is invited to explore inside historic buildings normally restricted or reserved for government offices. Here's your chance to go inside the Senate or the Elysée Palace where the French president resides.

Angélique Kidjo perfomred at Jazz à la Villette in 2021
A festival of soul, funk & jazz and the coolest event in September! Since 2002, Jazz à la Villette has presented a brilliant musical festival with a celebration of the many nuances of jazz. It all takes place in the expansive Parc de la Villette.
In the country that practically invented home decoration (you'll see what we mean when you visit Chateau de Versailles) comes a home show that covers decoration, design, furniture, accessories, textiles, fragrances, and tableware. As well as trade show, the Designer of the Year is chosen to represent an outstanding achievement in industrial and interior design.

The Louvre's Greatest Masterpieces
The Festival of Humanity has been celebrated in Paris since 1930. The fête, created by the newspaper L'Humanité, now attracts 600,000 people, making it one of the biggest and most popular festivals in France. It's a celebration of music, culture, politics, sport and… humanity where solidarity, fraternity, freedom, equality, social justice, and peace have a place to shine.
There usually are about fifty concerts on several stages with names like the Jazz Space and the Humacumba.
The festival that celebrates short films started back in 2002. Opening night kicks off with a concert.
At the Paris version of International Rare Book & Fine Art Fair, 150 booksellers from around the world, all members of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, will share their treasure trove of exceptional, rare works.
