The Summer Crossing of Paris; vintage charm
True to its inspirations, the Hotel Eiffel Blomet adores the wonderfully vintage and retro character of La Traversée de Paris Estivale (The Summer Crossing of Paris). On July 21st, come along and admire this grand parade of veteran and classic vehicles and rediscover the charms of a forgotten Paris...
A charming vintage summer parade through Paris
Taking advantage of the quiet summertime rhythm of the capital, the Vincennes en Anciennes vintage vehicle association is organising its second crossing of Paris on July 21st. This is a huge gathering of more than 600 old vehicles of all kinds. Cars, of course, but also military vehicles, tractors, bicycles and motorcycles participate in this fun parade and great atmosphere.
On the route...
The venerable vehicles will leave Vincennes to reach the Observatoire de Meudon in the south of the city. They will be travelling via major roads, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to admire a 2 CV or a DS, cheer a military truck of the Second World War or see a bike dating from the early 20th century. Our Hotel Eiffel Blomet team will be happy to direct you to the best vantage points from which to watch the procession. At the end you can enjoy the huge picnic at the destination, chat with fellow enthusiasts and meet the owners of these vehicular gems.
Paris in summer vibrates with original and surprising events. At the Hotel Eiffel Blomet we love the Traversée de Paris Estivale. It’s perfectly in keeping with the spirit of our establishment!
