  1. Is it safe to celebrate NYE in the champs Elysees? How is the atmosphere ? I know it can be crowed . I hope it will not be uncomfortable for my girlfriend and me .

    • Yes, Vladimir, it is safe. Paris is a safe city . there few uncomfortable areas but they are not dangerous. Of course the avenue is crowed for NYE but there is a good mood. Many couples are happy to start the new year in the most famous avenue in the world ;-). Since last year there has been s a show and fireworks . It makes the celebration more unforgettable.

  2. Hello,

    First of all its very sad to see the latest events that has unfolded in Paris. My thoughts are with everyone affected.
    We still plan to visit for new year and celebrate with the Parisians but i can’t find any information regarding New years being affected. I’d hate to have spent all this money to arrive to a pre planned lock down. Can you shed any light?

    Many thanks!
