Midnight in Paris

Paris is universally known as the City of Lights.  It was originally nicknamed the “City of Light” (not City of Lights) because it was a center of education and ideas during the Age of Enlightenment. In 1828, Paris began lighting the Champs-Elysées with gas lamps.   It was the first city in Europe to do that and therefore earned the nickname “La Ville Lumière“.

Although the historical reference is very interesting, I am quite first degree in my interpretation of this nickname as this truly magical place comes alive once dark settles on it and all the lights sparkle and twinkle.  Paris is certainly romantic by day but the night sky casts it in an otherworldly light making it utterly irresistable.  Despite being icy cold, we wandered through the city late into the night last weekend enjoying this magnificent city for all it has to offer.   I highly recommend doing a night walk for anyone visiting.
