When Winter comes to Paris
THE IDEAL SEASON
Often, we think that summer is the best time to enjoy a destination. But Paris is different. There is no better time to fall under in love of the City of Light. This city remains equal to itself, whatever the season, whatever the weather conditions.
The summer season has some significant attractions, who could resist a walk on the banks of the Seine on a summer evening? My favorite time of the year is winter. I am never tired of admiring, wrapped up in my winter coat, this snow-covered urban landscape. For a moment, time seems to stop: as if paralysed, the Parisian agitation calms down, and the streets are emptied, giving way to a show marked by tranquillity and poetry.
MY IDEAL PROGRAM
I look forward to the period to enjoy the magic of the Christmas markets. This year, let’s meet at the crossroads between the Huchette district, boulevard Saint-Germain and Notre-Dame district for an authentic experience: we discover the products of local craftsmen and producers, ideal for last minute attention!
After shopping, I take the opportunity to be in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés to take a break in the iconic Café de Flore. The hot chocolate of this historic café is an institution, a must when you visit Paris.
In the evening, head for the world's largest ephemeral indoor ice skating rink. It is under the Nave of the Grand Palais, from 10am to 2am that young and old meet to skate in an enchanting and idyllic setting. An unusual experience, which I am delighted to repeat every year!
I hope that these few words have made you want to discover Paris in winter, because it is by far an unforgettable experience!
