1- Centre Pompidou
The Centre George Pompidou is open on Christmas Day. The permanent collection of modern and contemporary art here is the best. The building itself is amazing and in addition to its permanent collections, visitors can enjoy a breathtaking view of Paris on the top of the museum.
Place Georges-Pompidou, 75004 Paris
Ice skating: This classic winter entertainment is much more atmospheric at Paris's seasonal open-air ice rinks. Paris offers a few excellent options in front of Hotel de Ville, at Trocadero, and Champs-Elysees, but the most exclusive ice rink is set 60 metres above ground, at the Eiffel Tower. The rinks open in December and some close already in the first week of January. However, others including the glamorous Eiffel Tower skating rink operate until mid-February, and those around Hotel de Ville are available well into the beginning of March.
Where we like to go best
The prestigious Place Vendôme was built on the orders of Louis XIV, as a grandiose setting that would embody absolute power in the very heart of Paris. The world’s great jewellery brands have turned Place Vendôme and the adjoining Rue de la Paix into one continuous stream of window displays filled with sparkling diamonds, rubies and emeralds. The buildings on Place Vendôme serve today as residences as well as retail stores, including those belonging to two famous jewelers and a number of well-known dress designers. A number of famous people have also lived along Place Vendôme, including composer Frédéric Chopin (who died in no. 12), author George Sand and Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. The Place Vendôme is very peaceful at night and the decoration is very warm during Christmas.
