  • Overview & Itinerary


    Feel the constant interplay of romance and monumental grandeur as you discover Paris by night on this guided trip. After sunset, when the avenues, squares and monuments of this ‘City of Lights’ are lit, the effect is almost magical. The romance is heightened and the grandeur magnified. The brilliantly lit popular attractions of Paris like the Place de la Concorde, the Champs Elysees, the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Arc de Triomphe and others dazzle you with their spectacular brilliance.

    This unique way to experience the sheer luminosity of Paris by night is a must-do on your visit.


    Set out for a Paris city tour by night in an air conditioned coach (with a recorded commentary in 11 languages). The brilliantly lit monuments and squares present a lovely picture for you to enjoy. Some of the popular attractions you will see are:

    Place de la Concorde: This is the most popular square in Paris with a pink granite obelisk which is almost 3300 years old. It was given to France by the viceroy and Pasha of Egypt. The female statues adorning the four corners of the square represent France’s eight largest cities.

    Place Vendome: Another popular square in Paris with fashionable boutiques and posh hotels around it. The Vendome Column that stands in the centre has a statue on the top that depicts Napoleon as a Roman Emperor.

    Champs-Elysees: This Paris avenue is one of the most famous streets in the world, with cinemas, cafés and fashionable boutiques. At the very heart of Paris, it is one of the most symbolic places in the city, representative of its spirit and glory.

    The Paris Opera: The most important opera house in Paris and an extremely beautiful building.

    The Arc de Triomphe: One of the most famous monuments in Paris, this great arch stands at the western end of the Champs-Élysées. The Arc de Triomphe is engraved with the names of generals who commanded French troops during Napoleon's regime.

    The Notre Dame Cathedral: The imposing Gothic style cathedral where Napoleon crowned himself as the emperor. It is notable for its impressive architecture and elegant interiors.

    After the tour, you shall be dropped back at 2 rue des Pyramides, 75001, or at Opera square or at Châtelet
