Weekend Links: Week Three

Weekend Links Week Three Relais Saint Germain Facade

In Weekend Links Week Three there are thirteen articles about France. There are plenty of changes going on in Paris and throughout the country – notably the pollution has returned to the pre-virus levels, Orly Airport and the Eiffel Tower reopened this week, and Paris Fashion Week will go on this fall. There’s also a Condé Nast Traveller contest to win four nights in the South of France that you won’t want to miss!
