What's in our tour?
The river-side walk from Louvre to Notre Dame, around sunset, gives you pretty much the best of the city of light. The tourist crowds are gone, the evening light reflects on the limestone buildings, soon the Eiffel Tower will sparkle for us. Welcome to Paris made perfect.
This Paris at night tour is not a history lesson, it’s a stroll. Our goal is to show you Paris at its magical best. As we jump from one side of the river to the next, expect surprises and changing atmospheres. Your guide is a born-and-raised Parisian, so also expect anecdotes and insider’s insights.
Your guide meets you by Le Louvre’s famed Glass Pyramid, by the horse statue. An unexpected grand vista awaits us, with opportunities for spectacular photos.
Your guide takes you through the courtyards of the Louvre palace. The night-time illuminations reveal invisible details, and your guide is full of anecdotes about it.
You arrive at the Seine – for yet more views. The D’Orsay Museum, the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the islands are all in sight. You and the guide linger along the banks.
Time comes to cross the river to the French Academy, across Paris’ most romantic boardwalk bridge.
Your guide engages you in conversation. What happens after dark here, what do Parisians like to do at night, what is the night-life like, what are good places to go?
As the evening falls on to the city, the frenzy starts to slow down, you feel the atmosphere change.
Here the magic has a lot to do with our city’s bridges. So we cross another bridge – pont neuf, Paris’ oldest bridge. More views hit us. Then suddenly we pass through narrow straits and on to a secluded, magical piazza.
Our final goal is Notre Dame. The light of the ending day reflects on the façade. This finale is true to the tour’s promise: to present the city of light at its best.
Student Latin Quarter and posh Saint-Germain are just across the water from our end point – when our tour ends, the night is still young…
To see more on this night tour, we do not spend time going inside each building.
