Christmas tour off the beaten path

Let´s do simple math: take Paris, being known as the City of Lights, and raise all its lights to the Christmas lights and decoration. The result is absolutely stunning. I´m Katerina and it´s my pleasure to invite you for a walk through Paris at its most sparkly.

Regardless how or whether we celebrate it, we should admit that Christmas time is a special period of the year. As soon as dusk comes, the streets of the already glamorous city get an extra sparkle. Close your eyes and imagine lovely garlands of lights, trees dressed in blinking robe, meticulously arranged shop windows by which not only children are astonished... Hmmm, anyone smell cinnamon? More than that - dozens of other Christmas-related flavours since the feast is in the air and one of the charming Christmas markets nearby!

Discover Christmas in Paris, learn about French festive traditions and food, marvel at decorations and stroll through many places off the beaten path!

During the tour, we´ll explore together some iconic sights of Paris as well as places popular among locals, but often hidden to the eyes of tourists, all wrapped up nicely in Christmas robe.


We will see reputed shop windows (inaugurated this year by Nicole Kidman), Opera Garnier, Vivienne Gallery passage, the Royal Gardens, the French Comedy Theatre, the Louvre, The French Academy. The tour finishes with the visit of a Christmas market.
