Every year, the Bastille Day fireworks offer a spectacular fireworks display at the Eiffel Tower, the capital’s most famous monument. To enjoy the display in romantic and comfortable surroundings, an original idea is to book a dinner cruise on a boat navigating on the Seine. The perfect place to admire the event from several unique viewpoints, through the windows or from the deck of the boat, far from the crowds.
