Paris Sans Voiture


Beginning on May 8th, the air will be just a little bit cleaner in Paris—at least on Sundays. The French capital’s government will ban automobile traffic along the famed Champs Elysées and on nine other roads. Another four areas of Paris will be pedestrianized on Sundays during the summer months, adding to 13 zones already designated as car-free. Tourists will be happy to discover that the Quartier du Marais and the Quartier Saint-Martin will be part of the Paris Respire project, at least for this summer season.

  1. I LOVE this idea. There is a lot of loud and annoying traffic in Paris and it will be great to do without it. (That is unless you live there and you are trying to get somewhere…)
