Village de Noël des Champs Élysées (returning 2018)

The Champs-Elysées Village de Noel is closed for 2017

Take a world-renowned avenue, string up some Christmas lights, line it with 400 Christmas trees, and you’ve got a recipe for holiday perfection. Maybe the gift shopping isn’t that great, and maybe the tartiflette is a bit pricey, but the ambiance is unbeatable. Go head to head with the holiday tourists trying not to spill their hot wine as you wander bedazzled by the lights on all sides.
