Solo in Paris Christmas

Jump to last reply


This year I will celebrate a siginificant b'day towards the end of the year and my work closes down over Christmas.

So I started thinking of a short holiday over Christmas. And Paris being my favourite city, I thought why not? Paris over Christmas will be beautiful!

Are there any specific tips or advice or suggestions for solo in Paris over the Christmas holiday? I was thinking of staying 7 days and have short listed accommodation in the St Germain area.

Coming from Australia, I will probably be jet lagged the first day. Any suggestions on what to do on that day?

I may have to buy a really warm coat the first day there, any suggestions of where I should head to buy warm clothes of good quality but reasonably priced?

Is everything closed on Christmas Day? Suggestions for things to do for the day?

I have been to Paris before but being winter, I thought revisiting some museums, Orsay and Louvre will nice.

I would also like to go to Versailles. Is this practicle in winter?
