Seeing the Eiffel Tower light up as night falls has always been on my to-do list. On our last visit in winter last year, we had limited time and it was a tad too cold to sit out on the Champ de Mars to watch the Eiffel Tower illuminate.
This time round we bundled up in our windproof jackets (you can always count on Paris weather) and headed out to Champ de Mars an hour before nightfall to watch the Eiffel slowly light up and illuminate the Paris sky. The highlight of the night was a 5 minute light show where the tower completely sparkled like a diamond. This was the moment where I thought to myself, “I’m truly here in Paris, living my dream”.
