Being home for the holidays is overrated. That’s right, we said it. It’s crowded, it can get stressful and it’s repetitive. So what if you could get away from the hustle and bustle of the holiday rush? Imagine escaping to somewhere magical, exciting and different. Think Paris. Paris for the holidays… now that’s something that we can get onboard with.
There are so many great places to travel during the holiday season. Some like escaping the cold to lay on the beach, and some like skiing in the mountains and then cuddling up in a warm cabin. However, holiday time in Paris is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.
It’s no wonder why Paris is known as the city of lights. The Eiffel tower sparkles in the nighttime sky, the trees are lined with colorful lights, and the extravagant store windows light up the cobblestone streets. From Christmas markets to ice skating, decked out store windows and the magnificent holiday shows, this magical city is guaranteed to make your holiday season the best it’s ever been.
The shopping and Christmas markets are the best you’ll find during this season. At the foot of the Eiffel Tower, is one of the most loved Christmas Markets in all of France, Village de Noël at Champs de Mars. And if you want to get away from the crowded tourist scene, you will love shopping around Marché de Noel at Saint Germain des Prés, where you browse a variety of authentic crafts and homemade cuisine.
We all know that visiting The Louvre is a must-see when you visit Paris. With 10 million visitors a year, ticket lines are long and pricey. But we have some good news for you. During the holiday season, VIP tours are offered at not just The Louvre, but at Versailles and the Chateaux of the Lorie Valley. Need some holiday gift ideas? A Parisian museum tour is the best way to take holiday presents to the next level.
Once all of that touring and shopping has tired you out, there is a special place that will tie together all of the holiday activities.. A trip to Paris is not complete without a visit to the famous Angelina Paris. This legendary tea house has some of the best pastries and even better hot chocolate. However, this famous hot chocolate is nothing like the hot chocolate we drink in the States. French hot chocolate is rich, thick and marshmallow free. So after a long day of shopping and roaming the streets of Paris, the only thing you’ll want to be doing is sipping a nice glass of hot chocolate in Angelina Paris.
The holiday season is about spending time with loved ones. Whether it’s sitting around the fireplace at home, or going on a family vacation, who you’re with is what’s important.
