Champs Elysees at night

Paris, France

You'll find most of the action on the Champs-Elysées near the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower, where crowds take to the streets to welcome the new year. There's also plenty going on at the clubs and restaurants around town. Whether you want to rave at a discothèque, watch live music performances, or indulge in one last calorie fest before your New Year's diet starts, Paris is the place to satisfy your cravings. Seek out your ideal nightspot at the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau website.
