Saturday 18 July 2009
Check into the brand new Nylo Las Colinas in Irving, Texas. The hotel follows the brand's loft-style aesthetic, with exposed brick, tactile fabrics and hip styling (nylohotels.com/lascolinas).
The Festa de Noantri takes over the streets of Trastevere in Rome until 30 July, with cultural events, street performances and fireworks (festadenoantri.it). For a city with cool credentials, hit the beach in Paris. The annual Paris-Plages event starts on Monday and sees the city's riverside thoroughfares transformed by sand, deckchairs, palm trees and summery activities (parisinfo.com).
