The Champs-Élysées, where the trees are decked with shimmering decorations, indulge the festive atmosphere that fills the air. The city's renowned landmark, the Eiffel Tower is bathed in a warm festive glow, creating a breathtaking backdrop for your holiday memories.

  Christmas Lights City Tour

Start your stay with a Panoramic City Tour to see all the major Parisian attractions splendidly decorated. In which part of Paris is the Christmas illumination the most beautiful? Are you betting on the Champs Elysées or Place Vendome? Avenue Montaigne or Place de la Concorde? Personally, I lean towards Place Vendôme, where real Christmas trees are installed all around the square. They are green during the day and like covered with white snow at night thanks to the play of lights surrounding them. Take a look and decide for yourself: your private guide and private chauffeur will show you all the main tourist attractions of the City of Light (which at this time doubly justifies its poetic nickname), beautifully decorated for the festive season.


  Gourmet tour of a Christmas market


Christmas markets scattered across the city, offer a delightful array of handcrafted gifts, festive treats, and local specialities. Kids especially love this gourmet tour! But it's very tempting for adults too (after all, at Christmas time, don't we all become a bit like children again?)  The guide explains the specialities eaten in France at this time of year, you explore the stores of local artisans, admire the nativity scene in the church, the Christmas trees. You taste the buche and Christmas sweets, and always pause to enjoy hot chocolate (for the kids) or mulled wine (for the parents) etc.... And the icing on the cake? Santa Claus is often present at the market to add to the festive atmosphere. For those who desire more, we also offer the option to combine the Christmas market tour with the classic Gourmet tour to explore the surrounding neighborhood.

  Tasting festive French cuisine


The restaurants from cozy bistros to Michelin-starred, prepare special holiday menus composed of culinary delights of French cuisine: featuring duck foie gras or smoked salmon as a starter; St-Jacques scallops or guinea fowl as a main plate; and a sublime chocolate fondant or Yule log cake. Parisian chefs craft delicious meals that elevate your Christmas dining experience.

  Christmas concerts

Immerse yourself in the rich cultural traditions of France with classical concerts, operas, and ballets. Indeed, many theaters, concert halls, and churches offer splendid performances specially prepared for Christmas. Our favorite is the Christmas concert at the Sainte Chapelle for its magical atmosphere and a enchanting selection of masterpieces that celebrate the spirit of the season.
