Paris Christmas lights 2013 - a magical trip for the whole family
Whatever your age, you can't fail to be captivated by the magical lights and decorations which adorn the whole city of Paris each Christmas, and 2013 looks set to be one of the most fabulous festive seasons ever. Plan a family trip to take in the lights and festivities during your stay.
Each district has its own lights and decorations and shop and department store windows are filled with magnificent nativity scenes and Christmas themes. In the 8th arrondissement, the glamorous Avenue Champs-Elysées will once again be a riot of colour as it is embellished with some of the most famous festive lights in the world.
A favourite with visitors, the most beautiful avenue in the world twinkles for Christmas as its 200 majestic plane trees are decked with glittering garlands of red, white and blue LED lights. The clever and creative illuminations run the whole 2.4km length of the Champs-Elysées, from the Place de la Concorde all the way to the Arc de Triomphe.
