At Christmas time, Paris sparkles with a thousand lights. With the sublime neighbourhoods and streets illumination (Avenue Champs Elysees, Montmartre ...), window displays and majestic decoration of famous department stores (Printemps Haussman, Galeries Lafayette ...), Christmas shopping is a real enchanting delight.
“Special Christmas” activities are hard to avoid. Visits by Open Tour tourist bus of Paris lights by night are scheduled from Nov. 30th to Jan. 6th 2019. Some beautiful ephemeral ice-skating rinks open their doors to you, including the magnificent one in Grand Palais where 2,700 meters square of ice are set up in the Nave from Dec.16th to Jan.9th 2019, open from 10am to 2am! Christmas in Paris is also an opportunity to experience many attractions, shows and family activities. A mere example of these would be the forecourt outside the Town Hall which is turned into an elegant forest brought to life by its carousel, its little train, its mulled wine stands, its pancakes and local products...
To sum up, experiencing Christmas in Paris is a magical journey for young and old alike.
