International Summer program in Paris

Discover Paris during the Summer:

The American Business School of Paris gives you the opportunity to study in Paris for one or two months during the summer. Come and enjoy the City of Lights as it gradually adopts a more leisurely pace come summertime. Pursuing a summer program in France is a great way to discover Paris and its famous landmarks differently, while studying international business. And no matter where you live in Paris, you won’t be far from a sunny “café terrasse” or a tantalizing traditional “pâtisserie”. You’ll see that there’s no better place to spend your summer!

What to do in Paris in the summertime?

Outside of courses, you will have a lot of time to enjoy yourself in Paris in the summer! Here are a few things that you should consider doing to make the most out of your time there.

The 14th of July is the national day of France: Bastille Day, that commemorates the storming of the Bastille political prison during the French Revolution. Every year, celebrations are held throughout the country, but the largest and most impressive are in Paris. The day starts with a long military parade in the morning. In the night, a large concert followed by magnificent fireworks above the Eiffel Tower is set at the Champ-de-Mars. If you have the opportunity, don’t hesitate and go see it!

Every year, in the 21st of June, the Fête de la Musique (Music Day) is held. This international day first came into existence in France, before spreading throughout the world. In Paris, the tradition is strong and you will see many concerts in the streets, concert halls, pubs and many other places! All musical genres are allowed, you only need to find the right concert for you!

Summer is also the best season to cruise the Seine river. Get onboard a “bâteau-mouche” (a “fly boat”, referring to the insect) from which you can enjoy the scenery and discover Paris from another perspective!

…not forgetting the many public parks and all the great museums or monuments that you can visit everywhere in the city! Paris is like an open museum, with many ancient buildings that made it famous. Do not forget: outside of Paris, there are also many things to visit, such as the château de Vincennes or the famous Palace of Versailles!

During your summer program in Paris, you will have a lot of things to enjoy and memories to make!
