There is some disagreement about which is the better view of Paris by night – from the top of the Eiffel Tower, or from the top of Tour Montparnasse. I would like to suggest that neither view is the best, rather, the view from the top of the Arc de Triomphe since you can see the Eiffel Tower and are “closer” to Paris that from inside Montparnasse. Last weekend and this weekend we went to the top of the Arc de Triomphe (free for legal residents of France 18-25 such as ourselves) around sunset and were rewarded with stunning views of night descending upon Paris.
So that is nighttime in Paris. Beautiful, isn’t it?
