Christmas in Paris
Christmas is on its way, making Paris even more beautiful than usual with Christmas markets opening everywhere, and shops’ windows showing off their best decorations. Here is a little guide on how to enjoy a magical Christmas in Paris.
- Shops’ windows
Every year, around November 20th, the famous Galerie Lafayette creates amazing decors and put up a gigantic Christmas tree. Le Bon Marché, a few blocks away from La Villa has also done the same thing. You can already enjoy those amazing setups and share the tradition.
- Christmas markets
Between craftsmanship, traditions and gastronomy; the markets enable you to taste local cuisine and drink hot wine in a cozy atmosphere. This year, the Tuilerie’s Christmas market will be open between November 15th and January 15th 2020. Another major market is the one at La Defense. They will be open between November 21st and December 28th. But, you can find markets all around Paris (Les Halles, Notre Dame, Hôtel De Ville, Beaubourg…).
Winter is a time of celebration and entertainment! Many performances play only during this period such as the new show from Le Grand Rex called “Water fairy tail”. You can also enjoy the biggest short-term skating rink of France at the Grand Palais des Glaces between December 13th and January 08th. Versailles takes you back in time with dances and musique. A must see in December only! Our favorite activity this year is the Museum of Fairground Arts. The perfect activity for families. They have a festival with street performances, magician, games and attractions for another time. It is a unique adventure, accessible between December 26th and January 05th 2020.
