Christmas in Paris the Champs Elysees and Arc de Triomphe
Special guided tour
About this experience
Our friendly local guide will introduce you to the magic of the holiday season in Paris.
We will start walking down the Champs Elysées, one of the most beloved streets in the world, lit up every December to celebrate the festivities. When the Champs Elysées switch the lights on, everyone in France knows Christmas is near. In fact, they come here to celebrate 31 December too.
The Champs Elysées has been a fashionable area since the late 18th century and it is the place where major events are celebrated; such as Christmas or... the victory French team in the 2018 football World Cup! Here is where the iconic Tour de France cycle race finishes every year and where1944 the Free French and their Allies marched to celebrate the Liberation of Paris.
We are going to pass by the Elysée Palace, home to the French President, admiring iconic places such as the Lido cabaret, and the renowned Fouquet's restaurant, where you can perhaps spot some French celebrities!
We will visit the well-known patissier Ladurée, where you will try some delicious French macaron and see by yourself if the French pastry art deserves its fame!
We will end our tour on the top of the Arc de Triomphe and what better way to see the Christmas lights across Paris?
It was inaugurated by Napoleon Bonaparte, built to commemorate their victories and now its one of the most famous monuments in Paris.
Everybody loves its terrace for its amazing views of the city.
Your friendly guide will tell you more about the history and the architecture of the Arc de Triomphe and then they will give you a skip the line ticket to enter inside and reach the top in no time.
Let's admire the Champs Elysées from the sky, with their lights and their crowds, while the Eiffel Tower shimmers in the background!
Don't miss the opportunity to live Christmas like a real Frenchman!
