Dear Bonjour Paris readers,
The only thing better than walking in Paris is walking in Paris without noisy cars and motos. Luckily for us, the city will be staging its sixth « Car-Free Day » this Sunday, September 27th. The central arrondissements will be off limits to cars, along with the Champs-Élysées. When it’s clogged with traffic, it’s often difficult to see why it’s called « la plus belle avenue du monde, » but when you walk down the middle of the Champs-Élysées, feeling the stones under your shoes, admiring the Arc de Triomphe looming in the distance, and the wide open skies above, with nary a voiture in sight… It’s something else!   

We hope you enjoy this week’s newsletter. As always, thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts. For those who have purchased a subscription to support Bonjour Paris, thank you very much! If you haven’t done so, there’s still time—head over to the subscription page here. Questions, comments? Feel free to send us a note at the following address: editor@bonjourparis.com
