I'm getting bogged down with the logistics of seeing Paris at night. My initial plan was to book tickets for the Eiffel tower for 9pm, stay until it was dark so 10pm, and then take a night time cruise of the Seine. We're travelling mid July and this was planned for our last night, with the ability to sleep in the next morning. The problem? I'm doing this because I think the kids would love it but this time of year, dark is actually way past their bedtime. While they can stay up til 9pm no problem, I'm thinking my two younger children (ages 5 and 7) will have a hard time getting to bed at 11pm.... and who am I kidding, my little guy will likely sleep through the boat ride teh same as he slept through the fireworks at Disney World. Realistically, we just can't do both night time events. I'm even questioning if we should do either of them.
If I have to choose between Eiffel Tower at night or boat cruise at night, which should we choose?
Is the boat cruise as nice during the day (thinking the end of the trip so that the kids recognize the places we're passing)?
