It's time for magic and Paris is lit up with a thousand lights for the end of year celebrations! During your stay in Paris, discover the many activities to do around the Gramont hotel to have fun and stroll around: illuminations, tastings, animations or decorations, you will have something to marvel at! The team of the Gramont Hotel suggests the tour below for your Christmas outings around the Opera district of Paris:
Start the day with a walk around the Grands Magasins behind the Opera. Every year during the Christmas season, people rush to discover the new decorations and animations in the windows of the Grands Magasins. It is a real rendez-vous for all Parisians and travellers during the Christmas period!
For this year's theme, Printemps Haussmann is putting on a circus! Stroll in front of its eleven windows and follow the adventures of the circus troupe! From the "clown shows" scene to the "Trapeze artists' ballet with Loewe" scene, it will not fail to amaze you and make you fall back into childhood!
📍 Printemps and Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann - 40 boulevard Haussmann, Paris 9e
Head to Place Vendôme, only a 10-minute walk from the Grands Magasins! Discover the magnificent illuminations that surround the square and take a photo in front of the large 10-meter Christmas tree, dressed in gold and silver. Come and admire the magical colours and the small trees at the front of the prestigious shops that surround the Place Vendôme.
📍 1 Place Vendôme, Paris 9e
Head to the Tuileries and its magnificent Christmas market for an atypical activity in the heart of Paris! How about an outdoor skating session? Whether you're with your family or your significant other, take advantage of the ice rink to have fun and spend some quality time!
⏰ From 19 November 2022 to 8 January 2023
📍 113 rue de Rivoli, Paris 1er
After the effort, the comfort! Just in front the Tuileries, go to Angelina to taste the best hot chocolate in Paris! Settle down in the rococo style lounges and immerse yourself in a cosy and very intimate atmosphere. Angelina is the ideal place for a gourmet break in the Parisian style. A treat for the eyes and a place to warm your heart!
📍 226 Rue de Rivoli, Paris 1er
Exceptionally this year, there is no Christmas market on the Champs-Elysées. However, you can finish your day in style by strolling from the Arc de Triomphe to the Concorde. You will get to enjoy the beautiful illuminations that give an air of magic to the Champs-Elysées Avenue. A touch of golden dust reflecting on the Haussmannian façades, a truly impressive sight!
Our advice? Wait until nightfall, buy a hot churro cone, then walk down the most beautiful avenue in the world along the decorated shops!
⏰ From 20 November 2022 to 2 January 2023
📍 From the Arc Triomphe to the Place de la Concorde, Paris 8e
