Paris Center Pedestrian: Inaugurating the First Four Car-Free Arrondissements on Sunday, December 3,

Experience the Charm of Car-Free Sundays in Paris: Every first Sunday of the month, the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th arrondissements transform into 'Paris Respire' zones, eliminating motorized vehicles and noise pollution. This initiative, in place since October 7, 2018, allows Parisians to revel in a vehicle-free City of Light. Join us for the upcoming event on Sunday, December 3, 2023, from 10 am to 6 pm.

This eagerly anticipated measure is the result of a significant collaboration between the Mayor of Paris, the Préfecture de Police, arrondissement mayors, and neighborhood associations. While most streets in these arrondissements are part of the car-free initiative, key thoroughfares like Boulevard Sébastopol and the Quais hauts remain open to motorized traffic, ensuring a harmonious balance."
