Weekend Links: Week Five

Weekend Links Week Five Sorbonne Café scene

This weekend marks another very long holiday weekend in France. La Fête Nationale (Bastille Day) is on Tuesday, which means the French will faire la pont and make it a four day weekend. Not bad! Weekend Links Week Five has twenty articles about France. It’s hard to narrow it down but it is a holiday weekend! Some of my favorites include the top five resort hotels in France, cocktails in the time of corona with Bar Hemingway master bartender Colin Field, Paris’ new floating movie theater, and a vintage virtual tour of Paris.
