Public Holidays in France 2015


Public Holidays in France 2015

On national holidays in France most shops and many public buildings and even tourist attractions can be shut. If you know where you want to visit check in advance to make sure it’s open on a French public holiday.

Many public museums and galleries are free to the public on the first Sunday of the month, though for some this is only outside of peak visitor times in the summer months, again, check in advance. You might find a few queues on those days as its a popular offering in France.

There are special celebration days in France too, though not national holidays: Celebration days in France
