Firework - Bastille Day

Hi ,

My husband and I will be in Paris for the Bastille Day.

Could someone give me a hint, if there are fireworks and where would be the best place to see it.

Also, as it is a holliday, I am sure everything will be close, so any suggestoin on how to spend the day?

Thanks!

Fireworks are at the Eiffel Tower around 10:30pm, you can watch them from the Champ de Mars or the bridges. Here is a link to a recent thread on the subject:

Museums are open -- we once went to the Louvre on the 14th. And of course parks, Seine cruises, churches, neighborhood walks and cafes etc etc

What is Bastille day? I am French and have never heard about le jour--ou la fete-- de la Bastille...

Do you mean "la Fete Nationale", celebrating the anniversary of the "Fete de la Federation" that took place on July 14, 1790??
