We will enjoy the magic Christmas atmosphere of Paris while discovering places and buildings that breath of history! We will admire different streets' illuminations, we will cross a magnificent passage way dating back to the 19th century and we will visit a huge Christmas market. There we will drink a spicy warm wine or a hot chocolate while looking at the chalets, offering a lot of different products and speaking about the Louvre history. After crossing the wonderful Vendôme square and admiring the opera house, we will arrive at the illuminated Haussmann boulevard. We will (of course) have a look at the famous department stores' Christmas windows and put on a show with amazing theatre sets, featuring animated figures and magical decor in an interactive world! This will be a source of wonder for both children and grown-ups.
Hi I am Nathalie! Passionate about the history and the evolution of my city I studied Art History and Archeology at Paris-Sorbonne University with a specialization in Antiquity and Middle Ages. I like to show Paris in different ways through different periods. To me there is nothing like discovering by walking and observing! The Christmas period is one of those special moments where the magic of lights and decorations shows us another charming face of the city. It is a moment of dream and happyness. So follow me in Paris by night and enjoy your time!
