Eiffel Tower- Night and Day

During the day the Eiffel Tower quietly poses for millions of pictures while by night it comes to life with thousands of twinkling lights.

Looking up the Eiffel Tower at night

Our first glimpse of the Eiffel Tower in Paris was at dusk before the lights were illuminated.  We admired the tower for several minutes from the Champ de Mars. There were many people lounging in the grass, enjoying their wine with a view.  This looked like a great idea so we came back the next night.

There is no bad view of the Eiffel Tower from the Champ de Mars. We easily found a great spot to relax for the evening.  The tower grew brighter the later it got.  Around 11 pm the lights sparkled for a few minutes, then again at midnight.

At 1 am the main lights turned off which left the smaller flickering lights.  It was as if the Eiffel Tower were vanishing right before our eyes.

Then all the lights went out.  It was perfect timing since we had just finished off a couple of bottles of wine and a bottle of champagne.

Eiffel Tower after midnight

Throughout the year the Eiffel Tower is host to multiple light shows.  I can imagine how beautiful it must look on New Year’s Eve.  If you are planning a trip to Paris I would suggest you save one night to do this too.  Au revoir!
