I believe some visitors still feel the same way as the writer Guy de Maupassant who famously always ate on the Eiffel Tower as it was the only place he couldn’t see what he felt was a monstrosity. For me it is a symbol of the start of my travels to France. We pulled up at this very spot travelling through by coach to the South of France. For our children and ourselves it was a magical night time moment that started an obsession with and love of Paris that still endures today.
Much later we ate at the small but perfectly formed restaurant Le P’tit Troquet on Rue de l’Exposition. Strolling after a very fine meal to the Ecole Militaire at the top of the Champs des Mars we were disappointed that there was no light show on the tower – no twinkling. We rang our Francophile friend in England to complain. She said we were at the wrong time for any light up. And then, just as she said that we got the full sparking light show – what an end to a memorable evening. BU Paris is more than just the tower and please enjoy my writing in ‘A Dream of Paris’ – a personal memoir of our love of this great city.
