Fabulous Paris at night

The city of love!

Paris, France…. Arc De Triomphe, Champs-Elysées, Eiffel Tower… Oh so many well known sites to visit in Paris. Just when you thought you have been to Paris enough times, when another opportunity arises to visit Paris you just could not resist! Right? It is such a great city just to wander around and enjoy the fascinating world renown sites, the historical buildings, the peaceful parks, and of course the darn good French cuisine. I went once again back to Paris in the autumn (November) of 2013 just to rediscover this lovely city. Visiting Paris in late autumn is arguably not the greatest time to visit. However, you will find less tourists, cool/cold days, and the last of the beautiful fall colours on the trees and on the streets. As I’m walking warmly dressed down the tree-lined Champs-Elysées towards the Eiffel Tower, I realised that there is really no bad time to visit Paris!
