French and School Holidays,  Life in Paris & France

Planning Your Trip Around French Holidays

When are the French off and when do they take vacations?
Here is a link to find the Public holidays in France. Museums and exhibitions vary on their open/close dates. Check the individual museum websites to see if they are closed either Monday or Tuesday.

The holiday opening times vary as well. Some are closed on May 1, December 25 or January 1. Those dates are the big ones to remember!

School holidays in France are determined by the school zone. Paris is Zone C. On the ministry of education’s website: Choose 1. Zone C 2. the school year 3. Scroll down to find the dates.
