The magical atmosphere of the end of year celebrations
Your Hotel Monte Cristo offers an invitation to a change of scenery via travel. And what better time could there be to accept this invitation than for the end-of-year holidays? Located at the heart of the 5th arrondissement of Paris, our establishment is the ideal place for an enjoyable stay. Here are some ideas that our team would like to share with you...
Your shopping at the end of the year
Rich in small designer boutiques, bookstores and art galleries, the 5th arrondissement is perfect for browsing, shopping and finding original gifts that will appeal to the whole family. To add to the fun, take the time to stroll through the streets of the neighbourhood. You’ll always find an architectural detail, a shop window, a small café of interest ... Finally, to immerse yourself in the traditional Christmas spirit, don’t forget the Christmas markets of Notre-Dame and Saint-Germain des Prés, where you can take the opportunity to warm up with a mulled wine and buy some homemade treats.
The magic of Christmas at the Jardin des Plantes
Recently reopened, the Jardin des Plantes has a new look. While there, you’ll also want to check out the newly renovated Gallery of Evolution and the fascinating Museum of Man. A particular family treat is the exhibition cum installation called Species on the Way to Enlightenment. This series of light sculptures takes over of the gardens and creates a magical journey that is perfectly in keeping with the time of year. Enchanting for children and adults alike, it runs until January 15th.
Your Hotel Monte Cristo welcomes you in an exciting area of Paris. This district is authentic, vibrant, close to the most beautiful monuments of the capital, and is also full of fascinating small places known only to Parisians. Our teams will recommend their favourites to help make your festive season a memorable one.
