Bastille Day 2017 in Paris: traffic restrictions

Hey friends! Bastille Day is just around the corner. Most of you will be celebrating it and if you have your own transport, you have to be patient and get a good map because the traffic will be restricted from 6:30 a.m.!

Each Bastille Day (July 14), the same thing happens. The day is shaken up. From 10 a.m., the traditional military parade on the Champs-Elysées and the firework let off from the Eiffel Tower.

Because of the parade, the traffic will be forbidden from 6:30 a.m. on a large perimeter from Porte Maillot to Bastille! Yes, we know, it is really big but the traffic should gradually resume throughout the day. Everywhere in Île de France, celebration areas will be secured by 11,000 policemen, especially near the Champ-de-Mars and the Concorde!
