The French National Day remains a highly anticipated event, especially in Paris. In addition to the traditional popular balls and the breathtaking firework display, Paris hosts a magnificent military parade and many other great moments. Here, the Hotel Eiffel Blomet team offers you a rundown of a day like no other!


Three essential steps

For Parisians, July 14th always begins with a visit to the Champs-Elysées to see the famous military parade. Even if you have no interest in military matters, you will be impressed by the gleaming uniforms, the impeccable order of the marching columns and the impeccable skills of the Patrouille de France aerobatic display team. Then, in the early evening, it’s on to the Champs de Mars for the great symphony concert offered by the Orchestre National de France followed by a dazzling fireworks display at the foot of the Eiffel Tower...


A festive evening

No Bastille Day is complete without a dance party! You might want to start the night before at the famous Firefighters’ Ball. The Place Violet barracks will welcome you for a good-natured and truly festive evening. If you're still in the mood for dancing when night falls on July 14th, go to the Paris Longchamp racecourse for the big electro garden party or to the Parisian clubs and bars. The Hotel Eiffel Blomet team will be happy to recommend their favourites.


Take advantage of the mild summer and experience a traditional Bastille Day in Paris. The Hotel Eiffel Blomet will be the ideal starting point for this day of celebration! `
