Whenever we plan a trip to Paris, the City of Love, we usually plan to visit the iconic Eiffel Tower, The famous Lourve art museum which houses the famous 'Monalisa', the Notre Dame - the 13th Century Cathedral, the Arc de Triomphe etc. We may even make it a point to book a Cabaret Show in the late evening either at the famous The Moulin Rouge, or The Lido de or at The Crazy Horse!!!

What I would really urge you not to miss is the Shimmering of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. When I first heard about it, I didn't know what it meant, I didn't know what to expect, but I was definitely very keen to find out and experience it first hand myself, and so all of us friends who were part of a Travel Group, went to see the "Shimmering of the Eiffel Tower".  We reached and stood in front of the Square of the Eiffel Tower exactly 5 minutes before 10 pm and waited with bated breath, nothing happened. There was a crowd of people gathered over there, the air was filled with love, laughter, people talking and just having fun!!! It was just lovely and as I kept my eyes glued to the Eiffel Tower, so that I don't miss anything, suddenly the Eiffel Tower was lit up what would seem like a Thousand light bulbs, all glittering and shimmering in all its glory and this lasted for 5 minutes and it was a sight to behold! It was absolutely lovely and the moment the Shimmering started, there was a huge cry of awe from everyone's lips. I had a camera ready in my hand focused on it, but my eyes were mesmerized by what I saw in front of me and I chose to look at the real thing instead of through the camera. The picture I clicked was terrible, but the picture that my friend clicked was awesome. The picture shared here is the actual picture clicked by my travel buddy.

For those of you who would like to experience the Shimmering, then this takes place every evening, every hour for 5 minutes. when the Eiffel Tower gets adorned with its golden lights and its beacon shines over Paris....

No wonder that apart from being called as the City of Love, Paris is also called the "City of Lights"
Go visit Paris..and let the City of Love, Lighten up your Life.

The Eiffel Tower is one of Paris's most visited attractions, welcoming almost seven million visitors per year. So no visit to Paris would be complete without a must visit to the iconic Eiffel Tower.

Completed on March 31, 1889, the tower was the world’s tallest man-made structure for 41 years until the completion of the Chrysler Building in New York in 1930. Built by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 World Fair — held to commemorate the centennial of the Revolution — the Eiffel Tower (Tour Eiffel) made headlines at the time as the world's tallest structure at 1,050 feet (320 meters).
