Spending Christmas in France seems like a great idea, regardless of whether you are planning a romantic trip or going on a family vacation. Beautifully decorated cities, sights, great wine, delicious food, exciting opportunities for outdoor activities, well-preserved traditions, great Christmas markets and much more are waiting for you. Here are some ideas about Christmas holidays in France.
Christmas in Avignon
Probationary traditions say that the Christmas holiday season lasts for 40 days. So, you have more than a month to enjoy the festive mood that has taken over the whole religion, to wander through the beautiful Christmas markets, to explore the monuments, to taste at least 13 traditional Christmas deserts and to drink some French wine. If you travel with the kids, they will love Christmas parades, folk art workshops and traditional themed dances.
Christmas in Leon
Some say it is better than Paris. Without agreeing or disagreeing we can say that the live family is perfect for the Christmas holidays. The night lights are almost as exciting as the shows in the City of Lights. The Christmas market in Carnot Square will only tempt you. Open air skating rinks, traditional theatrical shows and a much quieter atmosphere await you in Lyon.
Every year the Funny Christmas Festival (Drills de Knowles) occupies this southern French city and fills its streets with a festive atmosphere. If you want to be a part of these celebrations, Earls is the place to spend your Christmas holidays. Ten performances, music shows and other types of events will delight all members of your family. What else do you want for the Christmas holidays? This holiday is dedicated to families and it offers earless.
Christmas in Alas
This French region is famous for its wine production and wine tasting tours. In Strasbourg, you can discover the oldest Christmas market in France. If you choose Mulhouse or Kalmar, you will also have flickering lights and carol singing parts.
Christmas in Paris
Last but not least, the French capital is the heart of romantic couples. However, with ice skating rinks scattered throughout the city and special events organized for the little ones at Disneyland Resort, you will find plenty to do in Paris over your Christmas holidays.
