Paris after dark can be beyond gorgeous. You can see and feel the Eiffel Tower looking down on you from miles away. The city beams with lights and every sight evokes the presence of a galaxy not so far away filled with a gazillion stars with each a story to tell. If you’re in luck, you might even witness a performance of the multiple bulbs that make the Eiffel Tower depend ending on what’s being celebrated.


The first thing that comes to mind when you dream of Paris is the image of a few people, or a couple, sitting on the terrace off a café or inside on a banquet, delicately sipping an espresso or a fruity drink while people watching. This is the quintessential Parisian experience, and you should definitely take a moment when out sightseeing, to breathe.

When sitting on one of the benches of this magnificent park alone, looking at the sea of colors from blooming flowers, you don’t feel lonely. In fact you can’t help but smile and be grateful for the explosion of scents wafting through nose. You can easily get lost in your contentment and not notice the time flying away. A good book usually complete the tableau making it hard to return to life.
