(BPT) - The coming of the annual New Year's holiday is celebrated as a time of new beginnings and fresh opportunities. Why not get an early start on embracing the 'new' by welcoming in the new year in a fresh and unique way - by traveling abroad and spending New Year's Eve somewhere exciting? And what European city is more exciting than Paris?
Spending New Year's Eve in Paris allows you to experience the many attractions, outstanding cuisine and rich culture of La Ville-Lumiere (the City of Lights).
