Dinner in a restaurant and then take an evening stroll in the Place de La Concorde for your first glimpse or the floodlit monuments of Paris, notably the Arc de Triomphe at the head of the long Champs Elysees, the fountains and obelisk of Concorde. As you gaze around the spacious place it is hard to imagine the guillotine set up here during the French Revolution and the many heads that rolled. You might wish to climb to the top of the Arc de Triomphe.
