Paris is known as the City of Lights.  Do you want to know why?

Your holiday excursion will begin in the Galeries Lafayette, one of the most splendid old department stores.  It has the biggest indoor Christmas tree in Paris. It’s 50 feet tall! Each year it’s decorated differently but it’s always a spectacular sight.

 Outside the Galeries, you can marvel at the Christmas window displays.  This became a Paris tradition in the 1930s. Some of the businesses have made their displays into works of art with sparkling lights and automatons.  Be enchanted by the holiday magic.

Next you’ll go to Place de la Madeleine.  See streets made festive with lights, garlands and wreaths.  Stroll down Rue Royal until you reach Tuileries Christmas Market.

Immerse yourself in the festive Christmas spirit in the bustling Market.  You will find beautiful Christmas decorations, many handcrafted items and arts and crafts.  There will also be creative gift ideas, nativity figurines and festive foods.

Outside the Market you can see the magical lights of Place de Concorde and the start of the enchanting Champs Elysees.  And be sure to look toward the Eiffel Tower during the first five minutes of the hour and see the most brilliant light show of all.
