Festive Break

Enjoy the magical Paris Christmas Markets, full of delicious foods, interesting gifts and glistening lights. More than 125 squares and streets in the City of Light glisten and glow as tourists and locals browse the varied stalls. Many activities are available from ice skating and shopping to eating gingerbread and drinking mulled wine. There is certainly something to entertain and delight everyone. The stalls are particularly enchanting at night when they glow in the darkness and warmth radiates from the food stalls.

Paris is a fantastic city break destination throughout the year, however it is especially magical at Christmas. With festive cheer pervading the streets, the attractions have an extra draw. Perhaps visit the iconic Eiffel Tower and the atmospheric Louvre. Whether you love history or art, the myriad of world class museums are perfect for absorbing culture while warming up! What city could be better for doing your Christmas shopping? Between the luxury stores on the famous Champs Élysées and the handmade treasures of the markets, there’s something for everyone! You’re sure to find the perfect gifts and excellent souvenirs.

There’s nowhere in the world quite like Paris. And there’s no time more magical than Christmas. Spoil yourself and embrace the festive spirit in this wonderful city of culture and beauty.
