Interactive Mobile Experience Guides You to Free Summertime Activities
Jun 09, 2015
Google is helping tourists make the most of Paris in the summertime with The Magic Hours, an interactive experience that suggests activities to experience before sunset.
Created by 72andSunny Amsterdam (by the same team that did Google's Nightwalk in Marseille) and produced by Unit9, the experience is designed for mobile and accessed via the Google app. Counting down to the time you have left until the sun sets, it showcases 51 places and free activities to experience in Paris. The list, created with the help of local experts such as culture blog Paris Zig Zag and graffiti collective Underground Paris, includes sunset walks and picnic spots, ping pong tables and petanque courts, concerts and street art across Paris.
Through an interactive Google map, users can find their way to each location or learn more about it, and it also provides tailored recommendations based on the weather and time of the day.
The experience is available in French or English, running until July 5.
