Paris Christmas Market Tour
"Each place we visited was colorfully decorated for Christmas. It was all delicious—from the mulled wine outside to the macarons, cheeses, and chocolates! It was a real treat to be in Paris with my family for the holiday season."
We'd recommend the New Parisian Palate walk, which explores new traditions in French and Parisian food. It will give you a different perspective on French food and a feel for a different neighborhood.
