July 14th, Bastille Day, is always a great occasion for popular celebration throughout France. In Paris, it takes on an additional dimension, not only because certain places are historically linked to the event, such as the very symbolic Place de la Bastille, but also because the celebrations are so numerous. Here is what your Parisian July 14th could look like during your stay at the Paris France Hotel.
July 14th always starts in Paris on the 13th! That’s because the fire stations traditionally hold their big popular ball on the day before the Fête Nationale. A fifteen-minute walk from the hotel will take you to the firefighters’ barracks in the Rue de Sévigné. Then, the morning of the 14th will, of course, be marked by the military parade which takes place along the length of the Champs-Élysées from the Arc de Triomphe to the Place de la Concorde. This proud day of celebration ends in magnificent style with a symphony concert followed by a magnificent fireworks display at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. A magical occasion acclaimed each year by Parisians and visitors alike.
Bastille Day your way
There are numerous other ways to experience July 14th in Paris.

Finally, for an ultra-romantic evening, why not book a private cruise on the Seine? Several companies offer packages…
