Celebrate Christmas in Paris this year
Published on 5 November 2018, dans Discover Paris
To end 2018 in style, why not experience the magic of Christmas in Paris amidst a festive and magical atmosphere? Paris puts on her dazzling clothes of light and the city’s most beautiful monuments are beautifully illuminated, as are the streets and avenues. Children love to gaze, wide-eyed, into the display windows of the capital’s department stores. Finally, Christmas markets spring up all across Paris, filled with a fabulous array of goodies. Enjoy the unique Parisian festive season atmosphere during your stay at the Hotel Opera Vivaldi.
Paris shines brightly for Christmas
City of Light, City of Love; Paris never earns the accolade of these descriptive sobriquets more thoroughly than in the run-up to Christmas. The entire capital is adorned with sparkling garlands of light and other illuminations to celebrate the end of year festivities. This is the perfect time to stroll along the Champs-Élysées and admire its trees bedecked in lights, but it’s also a joy to wander the smaller streets of the city, as all districts make it a point of honour to look gorgeous for the festive season.
Shop window displays to make young and old dream
Each year the department stores in Paris thrill, delight and surprise us with their extraordinary Christmas windows. Bon Marché, Galeries Lafayette, Printemps and BHV offer wonderful trips to the dreamlands of childhood, populated by mischievous elves, cute dolls and adorable bears.
The warm and welcoming vibe of the Christmas markets
Christmas markets in the purest Alsatian and German tradition pop up all over the capital! Visit one or two to satisfy your cravings for mulled wine, gingerbread, cinnamon biscuits and a whole host of artisanal products. You’ll also find decorative items and small gifts for your loved ones before returning to your room at the Hotel Opera Vivaldi.
