A dose of good cheer
In winter, Paris transforms into a classically European wonderland.Think snow-dusted rooftops, illuminated squares and sparkling trees. It's easy to slip into the festive mood at the city's lively Christmas markets that spring up in many quartiers of Paris starting from late November. Check out the most celebrated and picturesque Notre-Dame Christmas market, which opens in December. Other popular venues for festivities include Montmartre, Hôtel de Ville and Saint-Germain-des-Prés.There’s a lot to do, from tasting cinnamon-infused mulled wine, nibbling roasted chestnuts, making merry with traditional carols and stocking up on hand-crafted gifts.
