Paris Christmas Markets

Our most popular Christmas Markets trip to France, takes place in the capital city of Paris, known as the City of Lights

Perhaps nowhere else is more appropriate to enjoy a visit to Christmas Markets (or, as they say in France, Marché de Noël) than the City of Light, which is Paris!

This Christmas Markets city break is a good way to get into the holiday spirit, with festive decorations and sparkling lights in abundance. Keep your eyes peeled as you might even spot a visit from Saint Nicholas - (or Père Noël, as Parisian children will call him).

There are many different Christmas Markets in Paris (often between 15 and 20 each Advent season…) and we will take you to a few of them, with a full day visit. Of course we will include the largest Christmas market in Paris, which lines both sides of brightly-lit and very well known Avenue des Champs-Élysées between Place de la Concorde and Avenue Montaigne.

This really is an unmissable Christmas Market. So whether you want to shop for those handicrafts and special gifts, immerse yourself in the glittering holiday lights, sip mulled wine and eat hot roasted chestnuts, or ride the iconic carousel at Concorde, this is a fabulous visit.

On day three we will transfer you into Paris again. Why not join our sightseeing tour which includes a one-hour River Seine cruise. You’ll see many of Paris’ famous attractions and monuments from a different perspective.
