Easter (Paques) in France

If you are planning a trip to France over Easter please note that Easter Sunday and Easter Monday are bank holidays in France and most places will be shut; however Good Friday is a regular working day. 

At that time of year, patisseries, boulangeries and confiseries offer a large display of chocolate eggs and chocolate bunnies together with some delightful cakes. Most French children will go egg hunting in their garden on Easter Sunday and hopefully find lots of colourful eggs “brought” by the Easter bells all the way from Rome.
