Every year at this time, the Christmas lights in Paris are a major attraction for tourists and Parisians. Visitors come from all over the world to admire the streets of Paris decked out in magical colours for the festive season.
Luminous arches, multi-coloured bulbs, incandescent flames and sparkling projections of light splendidly deck out the avenues of the French capital.
More than ever, Paris lives up to its name ‘the 'City of Light'! From November to the beginning of January, the Christmas illuminations on the avenue des Champs-Elysées, on avenue Montaigne, in Place Vendôme, the Montmartre district, Bercy Village and in many other places across the city make Paris more magical than ever!
