Christmas in Paris
for Primary Schools
Christmas in Paris
Traditional Christmas markets in France are part of its history - the traditional wooden chalets, local produce and festive gifts. it’s truly an experience not to be missed and a great way to introduce your pupils to French language and culture.
Your excursion programme includes a visit to a Christmas market with a PGL guide to help ensure you get the best from your visit. There's also the option to visit Disneyland Paris and further seasonal activities such as theatre visits and other sights of Paris with a seasonal twist – including the Eiffel Tower lit up like a Christmas tree!
