Due to the health situation, many of the events that usually take place during the Christmas holidays have been cancelled.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to admire the Christmas lights on board a special panoramic bus "tour of the Christmas lights" and designed to see all the districts of Paris illuminated and decorated for Christmas.

The following were also cancelled:

The illuminations of the Jardin des Plantes which have been enjoying great and well-deserved success since their creation a few years ago.

The Festival of the Wonder at the Fairground Arts Museum that traditionally takes place every Christmas

The feast day at La Villette which is a much-anticipated festive moment every winter in Paris.

The illuminations of the park of the castle of Vaux le Vicomte
