Photography on the Seine
There’s nothing better than strolling the banks of the Seine in the autumn sunshine—unless you’re also checking out incredible photos from talented emerging and international artists. Every two years, the Musée du quai Branly stages Photoquai, and it’s become a not-to-miss rendezvous on the art calendar. This year’s theme is “We are Family”– and it’ll blow you away.

Celebrate the Grape Harvest
Paris used to be covered with grape vines, and today the only surviving vineyard is located in Montmartre. Every year, the 18th arrondissement organizes a giant fete around the grape harvest that takes place in the Vignes du Clos Montmartre. Think parade, festive food, fireworks, and more.
