Spending the New Year’s Eve 2023 in New York is a dream for many people, but the trip requires planning. This is because the city is usually very crowded at this time of year.

The most romantic city in the world, Paris, could not be left out of our list of New Year’s Eve trips. The main attraction is the light show at the Arc de Triomphe. The place receives a lot of tourists, so the Champs-Elysées is crowded and circulation is allowed only for pedestrians.
