Oozing with atmosphere, Paris has long been the destination of choice for stylish shoppers, romancing lovers, and exploring for family and food lovers alike. Few wouldn’t want to spend Christmas and New Years in Paris – perfect for Christmas shopping in the chic boutiques, or wining and dining against the romantic backdrop of the City of Lights.
Take a stroll down the elegant Champs-Elysées and see this famous avenue decked out sparkling Christmas trees and 150,000 twinkling lights stretching from the Arc de Triomphe to the Place de la Concorde. This is just one of many light displays around the capital, so why not take our Paris Christmas Lights Tour to see along with the best of the rest.
With the Euro so weak, Christmas in Paris is the ideal time to stock up on gifts at better than usual prices. Head over to the impressive Galeries Lafayette department store for a fix of luxury shopping, Christmas carols or to admire the huge Christmas tree under the famous “coupole” glass dome. Thousands of local Parisians seek out Galeries Lafayette Paris as a ritual every year to admire the window displays and glittering Christmas lights that adorn the facade of the building and surrounding boulevards. Get a taste of local gourmet flavors on the Small Group Gourmet Christmas Tour, where you can pick up gifts for the foodie on your list.
There are plenty of things to do in Paris at Christmas, and it’s a delight for everyone. Don’t miss out!
