My partner and I are going to Paris for the day on the 1st May. We chose this date before we realised that the 1st May is renowned for demonstrations etc, and that most places will in fact be closed for the day.
I have a couple of questions - what do you recommend visiting in Paris, that won't be closed on that day?
Also, there have been numerous demonstrations in Paris lately, so that, on top of the 1st being May Day is a bit of a cause for concern. Does anyone know if there is any way to find out if there are any demonstrations planned/where they are to be held in advance, so we can try and steer clear of those areas?
Many thanks for your help!
