Have you ever celebrated New Year’s Eve in Paris? Well in my previous post I wrote about my first day with my boyfriend in Paris. Have you missed it and are you curious about what we did on our first day? Then go to the article From Paris with love part 1 and you will be amused.
But if you have already read it then the story continues…We went back to our hotel when we were done shopping. We rested for like an hour and got ready for dinner and New Year’s Eve. After that we went back to the Champs-Élysées to dine at Unisex. It’s an expensive restaurant, with a beautiful view and wonderful music on the background. I ordered some gambas with rice and my boyfriend a medium steak. There is one critical remark and that is: the rice was very hard, like if I couldn’t swallow it that easy. The rest was nice. When we were finished we were ready to celebrate our New Year’s Eve at the Arc the Triomphe YEAHHHHH.
It was’t that far from the restaurant luckily. When we arrived, it was very crowded with people and thank god there was a lot of police. All side streets were closed and there were points where they controlled bags and frisked people, so we felt very safe. There was a beautiful lightshow for like 10 minutes at the Arc the Triomphe. You could chose for the lightshow at the Eiffel Tower, but we heard that the Arc the Triomphe is the place to be on New Year’s Eve. It really felt short and I missed the fireworks though. But It’s very romantic when you go with your partner 🙂
The next day we went to the Eiffel Tower and WOW, what a big and georgeous monument is that. Now I understand why it is one of best known and most visited attractions in France. It already looks insane on pictures, but in real life it even looks better, oui oui ♥. There is a street with restaurants near the Eiffel Tower. We were so hungry so we lunched at Le Wilson. The restaurant looks very nice. I ordered a delicious omelette mix and my boyfriend a huge sandwich. The bread was very hard though, just like a stone haha. So time to make some photos by the Eiffel Tower. I really love the monument. You can by the way go upstairs with an elevator, but the row was very long, so we went to the Christmas market behind the Eiffel Tower.
So do I recommend you to go to Paris on New Year’s Eve? HELL YEAH! It only was too bad that the time really flew. But you know what they say: time flies when you’re having fun! Yes indeed.
I hope you liked my post and I will see you next time.
Merci et à bientôt!
