Travel Tuesday | Paris, France

It wouldn’t be Christmas in Paris without a visit to the traditional Christmas markets on the Avenue des Champs-Elysées. Stretching from the Champs-Elysées roundabout to the Place de la Concorde, you can ice skate, ride the carousel, sip 7€ hot chocolate, 9€ mulled wine or snack on 10€ gaufres (waffles with whipped cream and Nutella) in the shadow of the Arc de Triomphe on one of Paris’ most famous streets.

Metro: Champs Elysées-Clémenceau or Concorde

    Oh yeah, I also visited the Christmas market on the Champs Elysées. Unlike you, I found mulled wine for €2.50 there (cinnamon and orange flavoured), c’était bon! :) I had time to visit three in total (the one on the Trocadéro, opposite the Eiffel Tower as well as the one at the Sacré Coeur). Lovely. Did you go inside Notre Dame de Paris? The nativity scene there was incredible!

      Love Notre Dame de Paris – I saw the nativity but baby Jesus was missing. Is that a French thing? I feared he may have been kidnapped but I didn’t want to make waves…

        Funny you should mention this, I guess it is a French thing after all. Traditionally, baby Jesus only “appears” in the nativity scene when he’s actually born, so on the 25th at midnight! :)

          Well it’s a good thing I didn’t pull the fire alarm! I was legitimately concerned for nativity Jesus! Thank you for clarifying this lovely French custom =)
