Paris at Night
The city of love gets even more awesome after dusk. If you explore the history and architectural excellence during the day, I would highly recommend dedicating the evening seeing her glitz and glamour. In fact, Paris has a different face after evening sets in. If Paris was a girl, she would be your charming girlfriend during the day, but she would be the most glamorous diva during the evening! Here’s a few things to do in Paris that are better at night
Dinner Cruise on the River Seine
Try to book your slot for the cruise in advance. Your ticket will cost about $50-75 USD depending on the ship, time of year and of course if you get the best deal. Ensure that you have a memorable evening with at least a 2.5 hour Seine River Cruise/Tour so you can see the best of Parisian landmarks. Float past the historical landmarks and rate the beautiful city. The custom audio guide will take you through the landmarks along with a brief history. Enjoy the night views of Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, Louvre Museum and many more. Indulge yourself in the neon-lit city views and photograph the special moments. You will enjoy a three-course dinner and of course, wine to complement it. I am sure, the cruise will be the most memorable time, and you will write in your dairy (or post on your Instagram!) ‘J’em voyage de Paris.’ Don’t be surprised if you pick up a bit of French while you explore an evening in Paris!
Eiffel Tower by Evening
Book your seat in a private coach that is equipped with Wi-fi, light snacks, water, and ample leg space. Paris by evening is a different experience altogether. Whizz past the famous landmarks – Champs de Elysees, Arc de Triomphe, Palais Garnier, Eiffel Tower, and Louvre Museum. Explore the iconic sites and don’t forget to capture those special moments on camera so you can cherish the trip with your traveling companions. Take a break at the Eiffel Tower stop. Climb the tower to enjoy the enchanting panoramic view of the city of love. In one word, this view is just “breathtaking.” Every day at 10 pm, the Eiffel tower exhibits awesome lighting technique, which is enjoyed by many as people gather in groups during that time. Take a video of the moment and enjoy it even when you are miles away from Paris.
Louvre Post Evening
You may visit the Louvre in the evening. Every Wednesday and Friday the Lourve Museum opens at 9:45 pm to the public. The advantage is that you can skip the maddening crowd that occurs during the day time. An adult ticket will cost about 15 Euros while for children it’s absolutely free. Enjoy the various sections of the museum, especially the different departments. But, to be honest, there is a magical effect of exploring the age-old pieces of architecture during night hours. Moreover, the artificial lights at night give a mystical view to the museum. You may enjoy at your pace, with no hustle and bustle of the busy city.
Evening Tour of Moulin Rouge
You may opt for Moulin Rouge late night show that starts from 11 pm at night. It’s a two-hour scintillating show that reflects the style statement of Paris nightlife.
