Christmas in Paris France 2014

In 2014 we left the kids at home and spent the holidays in Paris. The history, the food, the people and culture of the City of Light exceeded all expectations in every regard.

These galleries contain the best of the 2000+ pictures we took on our vacation, but these pictures do not truly represent the overwhelming beauty of Paris, nor do they document our entire adventure for several reasons:

  • Many of the museums and monuments prohibit flash photography (or any pictures), which resulted in poor low-light pictures with our inexpensive point-and-shoot cameras.
  • Due to the tremendous holiday crowds we visited many of the monuments at night. While many of the monuments are potentially even more beautiful at night, the low-light once again prevented us from capturing the moment on camera.
  • In fact we have zero pictures of some of our favorite late night discoveries:

    Hidden Ancient Roman Arena

    The Panthenon

    Rue Mouffetard

    Place Dauphine

    Pont Neuf

We have also included 100s of links to websites (captions below photos) that provide more information about many of our pictures. These are the same websites we used to research our trip, learning so much about the history of Paris and French culture in the process. We are already planning a return visit...
