    Walking Around: Stroll, stroll, stroll

    by bfiesta Updated Mar 16, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our location in Les Halles was perfect for strolling in the evening. Lots of people... tourist and locals alike. Can get a little 'bawdy' late in the evening (after 11:30 or so). But there seems to be police just about everywhere in the city. We felt very safe. However, always use 'big city' common sense!

    A great gay /mixed crowd bar on two floors. Excellent piano bar in the basement (weekends) dance/disco music. Great theme evenings and gorgeous go-go boys Thursday to Saturday. A real fun night out in Paris.

    Dress Code: Come as you are...

    Walking Around: Paris by night

    Nightlife in Paris is wild and exuberant! There are tonz of clubs, cafes, restaurants, nightlife spots... It can make your head spin! But, sometimes one would want just a simple night walk along the river, or in the downtown. Paris is magic by night, all the lights and scenery, will surely make you have a fantastic time and feel wonderful, even if you don't go out to some nightlife spot!

  • Along the seine, to Eiffel Tower or the Louvre: Walk

    Eiffel Tower on a foggy night

    For me the nicest thing to do at night is go for a walk along the seine to all the nice buildings and sights and their lights.
    Well, it's romantic!!! And it can be cold ;)

    Dress Code: A warm scarf, comfortable shoes and there you go :)

    Strolling Along Avenue des Champs Elysees At Dusk

    by Krystynn Updated Dec 17, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Boulevard Haussman at Christmas...  Nice!

    For some of you who don't like rock, pop or techno music... and detest partying, may I humbly suggest another wonderful activity which you'd definitely approve of?!

    Stroll down Avenue des Champs Elysees at night.

    On normal nights, Paris illuminates before your very eyes... but come at Christmas time, this city literally becomes alive! Everyone seem to be thronging the streets of Paris till the wee hours of the morning.

    Don't you wish you were here for Christmas too?? ;-)

    P.S. The photo speaks volumes!

    Dress Code: You can dress in any way you like. Absolutely no pressure from the locals or from the best dressed tourists that you'd be bumping along the way....

    Walking Around: Risque Paris

    by JackT51 Written Jan 1, 2013

    Not looking for judgement here, but I decided to go slightly off the beaten path in Paris, and experience some adult services. One thing I can say is do NOT trust the local escort agencies, of course I didn't try them all but the two I tried were horrible. Enough said. After reading Richard McGovern's paris guide, I did have better luck in the speakeasy places offering good times. It took me a few days, and some hard knocks, but I can say my time in Paris I'll never forget! :-)

    One more thing: take extra caution when it comes to your wallet! A guy I was traveling with had his pocket picked the second night there - not fun!

  • Walking Around: biggest night of the summer? nat'l music festival

    by critter8 Written Jul 9, 2006

    wow!! we were in paris on apparently the biggest night of the summer.. the national music festival!! there were awesome street bands on every corner who were rocking it out. the streets were packed and CRAZY! a few of my friends had their pockets felt for wallets, but luckily no one was pickpocketed. the metro was a little scary, but it also was around midnight..right when the party really started. i was even offered drugs, and let me tell you... i do not look like one who would take drugs. hahah. but it was fun. people were out all night and there was a band right beneath our hotel and across the street, so we left our windows open all night to enjoy the music :)

    Dress Code: no dress code at all!

    Just walk around Paris at night. By day the city is full of people everywhere, and the contrast between both times of the day is huge. The city is not the same by night, it is smoother, less suffocating.

    Strolling in Paris is lovely, of course when the weather permits it. Here are few nice images I took at night.

    It doesn't matter where to go, you will have fun everywhere. The city is always busy with people… You might want to go to Moulin Rouge watching cac-can dancing. It's up to you.
