Things to do in Paris this summer include a huge film festival and two vibrant outdoor celebrations of culture from around the world - all within easy reach of Hotel Opera Lafayette, with our best rates available when you book on the hotel's website.

A summer of enjoyment for all

We include breakfast when you stay with us, setting you up for the day - and Hotel Opera Lafayette's central location makes a journey to our recommended summer festivals a simple matter, by taxi or Metro. Paris Cinema is a must for all film buffs, with 600 screenings at venues citywide. From 5 to 12 July, you can have your pick of the films - from children's movies to the latest art house releases. Many are free of charge.

Two outdoor festivals are among our favourites. Paris Quartier d'été from 14 July to 15 August brings artists from all over the world to Paris's open spaces. Among the attractions is a tribute to Nelson Mandela by singers from South Africa. In the beautiful Parc de la Villette, the Scènes d'été festival (summer shows) offers a celebration of a different country each weekend between 5 July and 24 August. From cooking to dance, from Cuba to Senegal, it's a trip around the world for the whole family.
