The month of January is one of the best times to go on Paris city tours, as the fun and festivity of the holiday season will be lingering in the air during this time of the year.
If you have been to the City of Lights, then you might be probably aware of the fact that Paris doesn’t slow down even after the holiday season. In fact, the city is gearing up for a wide variety of events to welcome the New Year. This means that there are plenty of things to do and see in Paris this month.
An added advantage of going on Paris city tours in the month of January is that most of the popular tourist attractions in the city will be less crowded, which means that you will not have to wait in long queues to gain entry to the major landmarks in Paris. Some of the best things you can do in Paris this month are as follows.
Paris Winter Sales
The windows of most of the Parisian shop will be covered with posters about their Soldes. This marks the beginning of the highly anticipated winter sales in the City of Lights, where you will be able to buy a wide variety of souvenirs and other items at a cheap price. One of the most attractive things about Paris Winter Sales is that the discount offered by most of the Parisians shops will not drop, but will increase over the six-week sale period.
Festival d’Humour de Paris
Several tourists who are on their first Paris tour have no clue that the French are really funny. If you are still not convinced about this fact, then you must head straight to the Paris’ Humour Festival or Festival d’Humour de Paris, which will be held in Paris in the month of January. The performance of a hundred selected artists will be one of the major highlights of your Paris city tour.
Musiques de nuit
After the all-night partying and celebrations of New Year and Christmas, most of us will be longing for calm and peaceful days. If you are one among them, then try to attend the Musiques de nuit event while you are in Paris. The major aim of this event is to prove that “in music too, the lessons of darkness, the serenades, the nocturnes, the reveries encourage us to listen better in the comforting or disturbing silence of the night.”
