Paris is also known as the City of Lights and the best time to enjoy the lights is obviously the night. The city comes alive with gorgeous sights and the architectural beauty takes on a different beauty in the night. In fact, there are several attractive locations, which you must visit on your Paris private tour at nighttime.
One of the first things you need to do on your night in Paris is to visit the Seine River banks during the night. The place has altogether uplifting energy. You can see all the lights of the city and experience one of the most sought-after night walks in the world. You get to see important landmarks of the French capital including Les Invalides and Notre Dame Cathedral during your walking tour. It would be the icing on the cake if there were moonlight to accompany you on your Paris private tour.
The cabarets in Paris are indeed an age-old affair, but they have never gone out of style. These places retain their attractive energy and are a great option to make your night in Paris memorable. The highly entertaining girls, dancing, singing, and juggling, make this an exotic experience. Some of the best options include Paradis Latin Cabaret Show, Lido, and Moulin Rouge.
If you are visiting the French capital, you must have heard of the famous Louvre Museum. This is indeed one of the major attractions of the city. The glass pyramids here will take on a different kind of glow at night, and the place will be free of the crowd too. Hence, it is a great idea to visit this epic museum at night. Yet note that the museum is open to visitors during late hours only on Wednesdays and Fridays.
With the right weather, Paris looks stunning during the sunset hours. One of the best ways to enjoy the views of the city is from the top of a bar with a cocktail in hand. There are plenty of bars in the city, which offers rooftop drinks. You can ask your private Paris tours guide about one, and head there for a relaxed night out.
The Opéra Garnier Paris is a great way to kick start a brilliant night in Paris. Yet it is suggested that you arrive well before time to admire the architecture and grandeur of the place. The Grand Foyer here offers great drinks, which you can sip away, observing the stunning gallery adjoining this place. Remember to book your tickets in advance to guarantee your entry.
Art Deco Pool
If you are looking to finish your day with a bit of physical workout, there is no better place than the Art Deco pool. This place is located in the 5th arrondissement. It was constructed in 1934 and has a classy vintage touch to the construction. There are other attractive features such as external façade and individual changing cabins. Besides, mosaic frescoes and the huge glass ceiling adds to the beauty of the place.
Vintage Car Rides
One of the classy ways to enjoy the night in Paris is to drive through the city on a vintage car. The lit up avenues and attractions look even more beautiful when viewed through a vintage car. Sit back in a Vintage Citroën 2CV and roll through the well-lit landmarks such as Notre Dame, the Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, and Sacré-Cœur. You can also go for a guided tour to add to the fun.
Paris is a great place for photography, even at night. One of the great ways to fill a photographic night in Paris is to sign up for a photography tour with a professional photographer. This will help you hone your photography skills as you capture some of the amazing frames this city has to offer. The guide will know where to get some excellent photographs at night, and hence, you will be led to these spots.
There are great ways to play with the light of the city at night. Some of these include Bokeh effects and the long exposure shots from the never-ending traffic of the city. Make sure you bring along your own tripod for these pictures, as they will be of great use for the long exposure shots.
French cuisine is indeed something you need to try out. The one factor that you need to bear in mind is the quality of the food. There are several good bistros and brasseries in Paris, which allow you to enjoy the local food at its most delicious. A bistro is a casual restaurant of the neighborhood that serves until the late hours. A brasserie, on the other hand, is a restaurant that serves throughout the night with a more elaborate menu.
