What could be more romantic than the tree lined Champs-Elysees glowing at night, or the beautiful shimmering lights of the Eiffel Tower in the near distance? That’s just a small taste of Paris at Christmas time as romance fills the air on almost every corner.
Taking in the magnificent Paris lights could be enough of a reason alone to visit the French capital at Christmas time. Notre Dame Cathedral is a truly spectacular sight with its giant Christmas tree lighting the night sky.
Open Air Ice Skating
Each year several ice skating rinks are set up around Paris for the festive season. The locations sometimes vary each year but they are very easy to find. A common location is the square near the Paris City Hall, also known as the Hotel de Ville. (Near Montparnasse).
Ice rinks usually appear in early December and stay open until late February, so even if you’re planning to head to Paris for the after Christmas sales, you’ll still be able to take a spin.
