3 Popular Spots In Paris You Must Visit At Night

Roaming through the streets of Paris at night

 

Eiffel Tower still continues to be one of the most popular tourist destinations around the world, also known as the symbol of love.

Did you know that more than 7 million people come to see the Eiffel Tower each year?

There are many ways you can roam around the city, be it cabs (which can be expensive), the train service (Paris has a huge network of metros that connect to almost all parts of the city and even connect you with other transfer lines), the sight-seeing bus services (these are available for the entire day as well as for the night tours) and definitely by foot!

There is enough reason for Paris to have its very own night tour, because just as the sun sets, the city comes to life with its beautiful monuments and streets all decked up in the warm lights.

The Arc de Triomphe is perhaps the second most popular monument in Paris after the Eiffel Tower. If you are close by the Eiffel Tower, try visiting this the same day, as it is barely a 15 minute cab ride or a 30 to 40 minute walk. And before you feel shocked, walking through the streets of Paris will actually give you a much closer glimpse at the city and the culture, than you can get from inside the cab.

The Eiffel Tower, or The Iron Lady as the Parisians call her, stands mighty and pretty in the warm lights.

You can visit the Museum of Louvre for an entire day if you are really interested in the art pieces, else you can do a smaller trip and visit it for an hour or two. This is also about a 15 minute cab ride away from the Eiffel Tower.

There is no doubt that the city is breathtakingly beautiful, and anywhere you go, whether it is a popular tourist attraction or just a quiet neighbourhood, you will find something or the other that transports you to a different world, and makes you fall in love with this super busy yet quaint city.

Remember that this is one cold city, and temperatures can suddenly dip very low even through the day. Keep yourself cosily wrapped up and make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. The best months to travel to Paris would be between April and October.
