Paris: City of Lights

Paris is known as the City of Lights!

You may think it’s about the lights that illuminate the city at nightfall. The city is lit up with a thousand lights. It’s beautiful strolling along Paris at night as the city looks so different.

But to be historically correct, the city of lights owes its nickname to the so-called Age of Enlightenment. Paris was the centre of an intellectual and philosophical movement that became the foundation of modern western political and intellectual culture.

I hope you enjoy these pictures of some Paris lights!
