Paris for New Years Eve
The Champs-Elysees is the place to head if you want to be at the centre of the party. Starting at around 9 p.m. on New Year's Eve, people start to flock to the famous street, often bringing along bottles and plastic flutes. From many places on the Champs-Elysees, you can get a good view of the Eiffel Tower, which explodes into a sparkling dance of light at the stroke of midnight.
Major firework displays can usually be seen from the Champs-Elysees, and there are plenty of spots to go dancing or dining before or after midnight in the area. Although the ambience here is usually "bon enfant" (literally-- "good child", or harmless) this won't be the party of choice for you if you're claustrophobic or crowd-shy!!!
