December in Paris. Ah, Paris is one of the prettiest cities to take a long stroll down Champs-Elysées, taking photos of statues covered with snow, watching dust trails swirling through the large opened streets, marvel at the windows decorated for Christmas, go to the rooftop at Galeries Lafayette and see all of Paris or hike the hilltops of Montmartre and enjoy a nice dinner, take in a show or see the Ballet at Opéra national de Paris, sip on some hot chocolate at the Arc de Triomphe or take a midnight boat ride along the Seine River.
