About this experience

Meet the amazing Parisian Christmas!
You ill meet your friendly local guide near the Louvre and together you will take a walk through the crowded shopping streets moving on toward less-known districts, where true locals do the shopping.
We will cross fine passages, once lit by some of the first electric or gas lightings in the city, sumptuously decorated and today still full of elegant boutiques and brasseries as they were back in time, with café tables out on the sidewalk. Well covered and heated they are the perfect place to stay outside in the winter weather, drinking chocolate or a coffee!

You are going to see a lot of landmarks and monuments along the way too. We will pass by the majestic Palais Royal, with its arcades full of history and now full of chic stores and delicious pastry shops! We will also get the chance to admire the beautiful Opera Garnier, and our guide will tell you the story of the legendary Phantom. walking down the Parisian boulevards, we will visit Galeries Lafayette, one of the most marvelous old department stores in the city, famous for its spectacular glass dome, and the huge and flamboyant Christmas tree which is established here every December.
You will see French children gather here to marvel at the three and at the window displays - join them and let holiday magic charm you!

Our last stop will be at a gourmet food store, where you will try all kinds of typical French Christmas specialties, both sweet and savory.
Sit with locals at their festive tables, and live the Parisian holiday season!
