London (2 May 2024) — With Paris set to host the Olympics this summer, there’s never been a better time to enjoy the City of Light en plein air. Discover 17 of the French capital’s most unforgettable outdoor experiences, from riverside sculpture gardens to urban vineyard tours, in the June issue of National Geographic Traveller (UK).

From sailing its scenic waterways to cooling off in open-air pools or stepping back in time on a historical walking tour, there's no shortage of ways to enjoy Paris as it welcomes the warmer weather. One of Europe’s most majestic and storied capitals, with plans to turn it into one of continent’s greenest well underway, this is a city best explored outdoors.
