Ways to Celebrate Christmas and New Year's Eve in Paris

Whether you're spending Christmas or New Year's Eve in Paris with friends, family, or your sweetheart, there are a variety of ways to get into the holiday spirit in the most stylish of cities. Here are our top options for seasonal things to do.

Go Christmas Shopping

Head to Galeries Lafayette department store, one of Paris' most famous shopping venues, to admire its extravagant holiday decorations and do some designer shopping for your loved ones back home.

See the City Illuminated

A holiday illuminations tour allows you to admire the twinkling city and Seine River with a guide, so you don't have to worry about finding your way around after dark. Some tours include dinner.

Indulge in Seasonal Specialties

Catch a New Year's Eve Cabaret

Add a sexy spin to your New Year's Eve celebration in Paris with a holiday performance at one of the city's cabaret venues, such as Moulin Rouge, Le Paradis Latin, or Crazy Horse. Ring in the new year with Champagne, and perhaps opt for a showing that includes dinner to enhance your experience.
