The mayor has vowed to make the riverbanks permanently car-free, but it’s a sure thing during Paris Plages, when rollerbladers, cyclists, and joggers take over the pavement.

This year, the mayor is dedicating part of the beaches to the Tunisian cities of Tunis and Sousse. To celebrate, part of the voie Georges-Pompidou will sport the name "Quai Jasmin," a reference to the jasmine flower, which is emblematic of Tunisia. Look for Tunisian exhibits, artisans, and even wine tastings to pop up during Paris Plages.
