Paris Sparkles For Holidays, To Delights Tourists

Paris is truly transformed into a city of lights as kilometres of iconic avenues sparkle with Christmas illuminations as the holiday season kicks off.

Each year, around 150 streets in Paris are lit up during the festive period with millions of L.E.D lights, as tourists and Parisians alike flock to streets like avenue champs Elysees, boulevard Haussmann and rue Montaigne to start their Christmas shopping in the warm glow of the lights, strung up on trees lining the thoroughfares.

In an effort to honour environmental targets, Paris has opted for ultra energy-efficient led lights.
