New Year’s Eve in Paris!
Paris on New Year’s Eve is a destination of the most classic you can imagine. The charm of the city during the Christmas period is amplified by the lights and festivities that take a little anywhere in the neighborhoods and the most popular clubs.
Fun is guaranteed at Montmartre and Pigalle, along the Champs-Elysees, in the Latin Quarter, in Place Saint-Michel, in the most classic places like the Moulin Rouge and the Folies Bergere.
For a more spiritual end of the year, in the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris it is possible to take part of chorus of Gregorian chants; while for lovers of chaos and street celebrations, one of the most amusing places is in the eleventh arrondissement on the rue de Lappe, a way small and narrow where there is an impressive concentration of clubs and discos: at midnight, however, are empty because people pour into the street together to celebrate the new year. It is almost a shame to close himself in one of the premises of the city: the streets have all the fun as possible in music and chaos.
For a year-end on the ice, naturally, there is a skating rink outside the Hotel de Ville. Do not miss the midnight fireworks from the Eiffel Tower.
