School holidays have arrived, and it's time to hang out with family, night at home by the fire and visiting festive holiday markets in the hometown and around. Few days before Christmas, our family spent our holiday breaks in Paris.
At the day time we visited Grand Palais where the Fête foraine beats his full, osmosis subtly successful folk art and classical culture. A Ferris wheel of 30 metres high gives unique opportunity to admire to nearest the renovated canopy of the monument and enjoy an exceptional view of all paris.
More than 50 attractions are accessible at will: bumper cars, shooting the rifle, voltigeurs and wooden horses lead visitors, large and small, this is happiness and strong sensations for our children !
After from the Fête foraine, we were going to special gourmet section on the Christmas Market along the Champs-Elysees, we pick some food and choose Fontaines du Jardin des Tuileries to enjoy our food while watching some birds and wild ducks playing on the fountain.
When afternoon had comes, we took a metro to Chaussée d'Antin - La Fayette, but not for shopping, just to amired The windows of Parisian stores Christmas for our kids.
In keeping with tradition, the facades of the Parisian department stores (Printemps Haussmann, Galeries Lafayette, BHV, le Bon Marché) parent as early as November of their most beautiful party decorations. While the streets of the city parent of garlands and lights, the windows of department stores to embellish beautiful firs, wild fireflies and gift packages.
The windows are also theatre surprising sketches which combines animated automatons and magical scenery in an interactive world... a real spectacle!
And to finish our tour at that day before we back to our rent appartment Airbnb, we enjoyed our night at Christmas Market on Champs-Elysees. We found a lot of stalls selling mass market items, and games for children too.
We have a wonderful journey at that day, our children so happy, even tired but they keep talking about their imagination of their world.... Next day we will have another journey to explore while our breaks in Paris.
