  • Description

    PARIS BY NIGHT IS AN IMPRESSIVE SIGHT. AN EVEN MORE IMPRESSIVE SIGHT WHEN SOME OF ITS FAMOUS MONUMENTS ARE LIT UP. BUT THAT IS ONLY ON SPECIAL OCCASIONS.

    TAKE THE LEGENDARY ARC DE TRIOMPHE, FOR EXAMPLE. ONLY ON MILITARY NIGHTS DOES IT GLOW MAJESTICALLY AT THE TOP OF THE CHAMPS ELYSEES.

    BUT WITH A BIT OF MONEY YOU YOURSELF CAN LIGHT IT UP. NOT ONLY THE ARC, BUT ALSO CLEOPATRA'S NEEDLE, ON THE PLACE DE LA CONCORDE, AND EVEN THE EIFFEL TOWER, ACROSS THE RIVER.

    AND IT'S NOT REALLY THAT EXPENSIVE. YOU CAN HAVE THE EIFFEL TOWER ABLAZE FOR 34 U.S. DOLLARS AN HOUR. OR, IF YOU'RE ON A TIGHT BUDGET, GET CLEOPATRA'S NEEDLE TWINKLING FOR JUST 11 DOLLARS AN HOUR.

    IT'S A GREAT WAY TO IMPRESS YOUR FRIENDS. AND IF YOU WANT TO IMPRESS THEM EVEN FURTHER, YOU CAN HIRE A MAN TO GIVE A POETICAL HISTORY OF THE MONUMENT.

    ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GIVE 48 HOURS' NOTICE TO THE PAR'S CITY AUTHORITIES, AND THEY WILL ARRANGE THE REST.
