Paris, city of light, is even more deserving of that title over the Christmas period. This is when the French capital puts on its finery to dazzle children and adults with magic. The month of December becomes the perfect excuse for some strolls among the illuminations. Let the garlands of light be your guide.

Not to be missed: the windows of the big department stores

The Galeries Lafayette and Printemps department stores pull out all the stops to make Christmas magical with a light show of patterns and colours that is played on their facades and window displays that are animated, fairytale scenes. For 2014, Galeries Lafayette has invited gentle and colourful monsters to create some fun and at Printemps, there are characters dressed in Burberry that fly through the skies using their umbrellas. As you can imagine, you won’t be alone to enjoy these windows, but there are little platforms provided for the children to stand on to get a better view.
