Paris by night is always lovely. But in 2008 it became even more beautiful when the Eiffel Tower was dressed up in hounour of the French taking the helm of the European union.
We spent 5 days in Paris that time and every evening we headed out towards the Eiffel Tower after dark to admire the gorgeous light spectacle. Normally we would go underground using the closest Metro entrance to get back to the hotel. But the last day we decided we would walk all the way back and enjoy the beautifull night. After a while I turned around and saw this amazing scene! Check for yourselves and I’m sure you’ll agree: Paris is lovely by night!
