Christmas decorations in the streets of Paris
Elegant and lovely at any time, Paris is particularly beautiful during the end-of-year festivities. Parisian streets and monuments are decked out in lights and magnificent decorations that you can enjoy during your vacation.
The Champs Élysées
The Champs Élysées is trimmed with fairy lights and decorations starting in November. For a few weeks, the most beautiful avenue in the world and its many shops offer Parisians and tourists a special holiday atmosphere. The Christmas market is set up there too, providing an occasion to discover typical French crafts and local food products while warming up with a glass of mulled wine.
Place Vendôme, the square chosen by the greatest jewelry makers and sellers, is bedecked in wonderfully refined Christmas decorations. You can also admire the lights of Avenue Montaigne, an emblematic place for French high fashion.
The monuments are also decked out in thousands of lights: The Palais Garnier opera house, the Louvre, Les Invalides, and the Notre-Dame cathedral rival each other in effort and creativity to celebrate Christmas. Without a doubt, the unmissable Eiffel Tower is the culmination of Parisian lights and decorations.
The number are staggering. Just imagine: 800,000 LED bulbs for the Champs Élysées alone!
