Paris by Night

By Viator, October 2013

4 362 Reviews | Add your review

As if Paris wasn’t gorgeous enough by day, at night it becomes a seductress of lights and shadows with that grand dame, the Eiffel Tower, shining the brightest light of all. Lit up from top to bottom, the Eiffel Tower also has a sweeping light circling from its top peak like a lighthouse.

Other Paris icons are also bathed in light at night: the Arc de Triomphe tops the Champs Elysees, itself beautifully lit along the length of the avenue. Many of the city’s wonderful squares are also lit up at night: Place Vendome, Place Pigalle, Place Blanche, and Place de la Concorde, which is the gateway to the Champs Elysee, the Tuileries Garden, the Rue Royale and the Seine River at the Pont de la Concorde.

And of course, the Louvre lights its regal façade while the modern pyramid in the courtyard glows gently. The Paris Opera looks beautiful at night – it was built for such an evening performance. Step inside to see the ceiling by Marc Chagall painted in 1963.

The Trocadero, Les Invalides, the many museums – all light up at night. And you will not want to miss the grand cathedral Notre Dame with its towers and gargoyles, a short stroll from some of the city’s most interesting places to eat and drink and wander.

A night cruise along the Seine reveals beauty after beauty as so many of Paris’s icons stand proudly riverside. One of the advantages of visiting Paris in winter is that it gets darker earlier so you have more time to enjoy this greatest of world cities wearing her cloak of many colors. No wonder they call her the City of Light.
