    A must see fireworks display, parade etc. Great street parties and excitement in the city of Paris. Loved the fireworks.

    I ran this in October 2021, after two previous postponements with Covid. It was well worth the wait.

    The route is just stunning. Think of almost any of Paris's many landmarks and the route goes past almost every one. From a start in a packed and pumped Champs Elysee, Le Louvre, Opera Garnier, Bastille, through Vincennes, back along the Seine and with the Eiffel Tower coming out from the sky at around 28k. You finish coming out of the Bois de Boulogne with the Arc de Triomphe in sight. They are testing this route for the Olympics in 2024 and that will be some spectacle.

    I ran in glorious sunshine, and Paris like this is just sublime. If you get that, you will have the race of a lifetime. The course was well stocked with water and food stops, and cake in particular every 5k or so was a big winner.

    The expo is out in Porte de Versailles, but was well organised and big enough. Only gripes are needing to get a doctor's certificate for it, issues with the website/app service. The medal is sadly a disaster: essentially just advertising the sponsor, trying to be kooky (I think(, has little to identify with Paris and is made as cheap and as flimsy as possible. A medal for a city like Paris shouldn't be hard to do well, but this one is the worst I have seen. I'd probably run it again just to get a proper one.

    Nothing but good things to say about the city itself, other than try to stay a day or two after to properly enjoy it. And when booking hotels, there really isn't much difference in size and quality for a lot of them. Booking the location is key; ideally away from the main tourist spots where real Paris still exists. Many of the hotels will be exactly the same anyways, unless you can afford something very special.

    This is my third visit toParis Photo and this year was one of the best. There is almost too much to take in. I spent the entire four days at the venue and saw amazing work, beautiful books, and excellent artist talks. The highlight for me was getting to hear Josef Koudelka speak. He has always been one of my heroes and a hugh=e influence on my work. I would absolutely recommend attending this if you are the least bit interested in photography.

    Bot tickets at the last minute on the Roland-Garros website. Name is assigned, so tickets can't be scalped making seeing tennis a reasonable price! Rain and umbrellas a nuisance. The bathrooms at Suzanne Lengren stadium are choas (bottle neck of traffic in this area). Limited options of food. Tennis and venue, however, were great.

    We happened upon this by chance and it would appeal mostly to youngsters (which I am certainly not). However, we walked the length of the crowded parade by the Louvre and it was quite easy to enjoy a lot of the music mixes and beats but mostly it was enormous fun to watch people enjoying it - there was a lot of singing dancing and laughter which was infectious. There were specific floats by children and older musicians. It did rain, umbrellas were no use in the crowd. The usual festival advice applies, bring water, snacks and waterproofs.
    Police presence was low key and we didn't see any problems at all.

    Our second visit to Paris for this evening. (Our previous visit happened to coincide with it but we missed it completely!)

    We were able to see the parade from Place de la Concord as it passed by the Louvre. It was worth it - just to hear 'Scotland the Brave' being played by the pipe band as it marched past!

    We were disappointed though that we couldn't find a map showing the locations of all the other events, so instead of staying up late, we went for a meal and then back to the hotel.

    If there was a map showing whereabouts each event was, we could've made a night of it, so one star off.

    Enjoyable depending on who is playing, but oh my god how busy! We must have queues for 2 hours to get in! Yes we had a nice time when we were there and saw some great acts, but the way out was worrying so many people in one place! Quite worrying!
