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 fireworks display at 11PM.
This year, Paris, the city of light, is doing things well: the fireworks will be launched directly from the Eiffel Tower, and not from the Trocadéro gardens.
