Guided tour of Paris, the must-see city of light!
Visit Paris, the capital of France has been nicknamed the City of Light for many years. Indeed, the city of Paris has obtained this nickname since the 17th century, because, at that time, King Louis XIV decided to light up the whole city with candle lanterns and torches to highlight the less illuminated corners, which were inclined to have ill reputations as well.
It was alongside Minister Jean-Baptiste Colbert that the king tried to fight the crime that annoyed the entire city and, therefore, secured the streets during the night such that the roaming thugs could no longer prey on passers-by.
A little later in 1820, Philippe Lebon, inventor of lighting gas, developed urban lighting by illuminating several covered passages and Parisian monuments.
To this date, the city of Paris is lit up by thousands of lights of all kinds and fully justifies its position and its name of the City of Light.
Discover a magnificent and memorable night tour of the city of Paris. Year-round, several monuments are enhanced by night lighting and various light effects, which give them a whole new look at night. The monuments are illuminated and embellished through the brightness of thousands of bulbs and the famous old Parisian lamp posts.
In this heritage-rich city, you will discover through these various historical monuments the charm of the capital, through the sparkling Eiffel Tower, or even through the magical glow of the Louvre pyramid.
During this nocturnal getaway, imagine walking up the avenue of the Champs Elysées, completely glowing, and discovering the incredible Arc de Triomphe at the end of the alley. This monument offers a breathtaking sight on the Champs Elysées roundabout.
Other monuments such as the Garnier Opera and the Sacré-Coeur basilica in Montmartre light up and transform the scene, thus creating a captivating atmosphere in the alleys of the capital. The panorama and the glowing buildings offer an experience that brings both a sense of mystery and fantasy to this getaway.
From Place Vendôme to Place de la Concorde, passing by Notre-Dame Cathedral, the most beautiful monuments of Paris will parade in front of you.
