Let there be light
For several centuries, treatment Paris has been dubbed the City of Light. Such praise, store initially motivated by the quality of its public lighting, from thousands of oil lamps in the 18th Century, to gas lamps in the 19th Century, is not without justification, but nonetheless,
must continually be lived up to! Along with other major streets of the capital, Avenue Montaigne does its share to perpetuate this reputation with a rich program of illumination.
From the end of November to mid- January, to celebrate the Christmas season and brighten the short days of winter, its trees twinkle with tens of thousands of bulbs, totally ecological since 2006 when the traditional models were replaced by energy saving lights, but in a décor whose elegance is in total harmony with the boutiques lining its sidewalks. Add to this the Hotel Plaza Athénée, the restaurants, the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, each of which projects its own welcoming lights. Fiat lux! Let there be light! On the Avenue Montaigne, the wish becomes reality.
