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 July 14 or Bastille Day, 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.

Covering the whole Île-de-France region, party areas will be secured by 11.000 policemen and traffic cops, especially on the areas from Champs-de-Mars to La Concorde!

In Paris, the restriction is wide and we will tell you as soon as we know more, we hope it will be on July 12, 2018!
