My top picks in Chartres Events June 2014 list includes La fête de la musique, La fête de l'eau (Water Festival) and not to mention the on-going light show.
The weather in June is usually miserable; high humidity, windy and rains a lot, so prepare a proper dress if you wish to attend those unmissable attractions.
Here are the things to do list, if you are in Chartres in June:
Chartres en Lumière
When: April 12 to October 12
Where: Chartres city center
Chartres en Lumière - the city will be nothing without the light! That is why Chartres is also known as the Capital of Light!
What's NEW! this year: the light show will last longer from on April 12 through October 12, which means two week extra time! New animations onto 23 museums and historic sites, you should not miss this!
The show starts right after the dusk (around 10pm) until 1am. You can enjoy it in many ways; by riding the white little train (le petit chart'train) - depart from cathedral (no reservation needed for individual), by bicycle or walking! The last one is perfect for getting the best night photography.
