Paris is known as the City of Lights but at Christmas it turns into the City of fairy lights.
Strings of lights hang from the trees in wide avenues, beautiful boulevards and cobbled side streets.

The Eiffel Tower sparkles, Notre Dame twinkles and everywhere you go you’ll discover something beautiful to fall head over heels for.
