This summer there's a zillion things to do at Paris Plage: basketball, tennis, wrestling, fencing, ping pong, bowls, tai chi, ballroom dancing, a gym area, a micro-droplet shower spray to cool you down; an "adventure beach" for young children including water games; and concerts, workshops and shows to entertain all the family. With palm trees, fine sand, and plenty of deckchairs, Paris Plage offers summer fun along the Seine through Sunday, August 17.

On Ile de la Cité, look up to see four angels perched on the Sainte-Chapelle steeple. Holding instruments of the Passion, they are interspersed with angel musicians blowing long trumpets.
