Paris undergoes a brilliant transformation during the holidays…
It is one of my very favorite times to visit Paris. There’s never a better time than during the holidays for Paris to live up it’s name “The City of Lights”.
Explore Paris’ monuments as they are dressed in decorative lights, stop by a Christmas Village to sip on a glass of “vin chaud”, be amazed at intricate displays of the “grand magasin” department store windows, take a spin around city hall’s ice skating rink, stroll through the illuminated twinkling cobble stone streets, indulge in champagne and foie gras, take a bite (or three) of the traditional Buche de Noel, visit the beautiful nativity displays in all the churches… There is just so much to see and do, if you ever have the chance to visit do not hesitate one second!
For those who can’t make it just right now, enjoy this glimpse of some of the sparkle and charm of the Parisian Holiday Season:
