A classic: the Eiffel Tower fireworks
The 14th of July in Paris is, for many people, the day to be in the “Place Trocadéro” near the Eiffel tower to watch the concert and above all the firework display at 11PM.
This year, the city of light has taken things up a gear: the fireworks will be launched directly from the Eiffel Tower and not from the Trocadéro gardens.
If you are planning to visit Paris during this period, Lodgis offers many furnished rentals in Paris’ 7th arrondissement, where the Eiffel Tower and the Champs-de-Mars are located.

The other fireworks
The fireworks at the Eiffel Tower are not the only display available to you. There are other firework displays, as many of the towns in the Paris region have their own firework displays (generally organized in the city stadium).
If you want to avoid the crowds or if you are really far from the Eiffel Tower, there’s no need to worry: you’ll find other fireworks near your apartment.
Some cities organize fireworks on the 13th of July, others on the 14th of July. Some start the fireworks at 11PM, others at midnight… To sum up, each city has its own system, so do some research before you go anywhere to make sure you know what’s happening.

Clubbing on the night of the 14th of July
There are many Fireman’s balls in Paris, so don’t hesitate to check if there is one near your place! If you’ve already been to one of these balls, it doesn’t sound like your cup of tea or have seen the fireworks several times before, why not consider clubbing? Paris’ clubs are putting on some big parties for this special day!
