Paris is dressed for the festive season. Many Parisian sites and streets offer new decorations, as the Place of La Concorde, which presents a huge Christmas tree of 10 tons and 35 meters.

The big Wheel came back for the winter period, this time again, in the middle of the historical axis of Paris (the axis is little bit "spoiled" but the view at the top of the wheel is awesome!)

The avenue of the Champs-Elysées is now totally enlightened and hosts for the fourth year the shops of very long Christmas market.

Champs Elysees - Festive season

In the center of the Champs-Elysées, one can find the magnificent "Grand Palais" (Grand Palace), place of many splendid exhibitions. These year, from the 13th of December to the 6th of January, the Grand Palais hosts the biggest ice skating rink ever, under the sun lounge. This event is called the "Grand Palais des Glaces" (the Grand Palace of the Ice). Click here to know more about this event.
