Christmas Markets -Explore a world of little wooden chalets
Published on in Events
If you're spending Christmas at the Vice Versa in Paris, be sure to make time for the Christmas markets that spring up in the capital from early December. A maze of small wooden huts filled with handicrafts and decorative items or serving season treats like mulled wine and roasted chestnuts, the markets are a great way to pass a few magical hours. And, you may get to meet Santa Claus! Try the Mail Branly, Invalides and Montparnasse markets close to the hotel.
