"Bastille Day" Bastille Day - 14 July Tip by larsy

Bastille Day - 14 July, Paris: 14 reviews and 29 photos


It was my fault for making my first trip Bastille day, the stereotypically rude Parisians were more than living up to it . It is legal to sell firecrackers half the size of a stick of dynamite which the youth enjoyed throwing at side walk cafes and even baby carriages. My friend and I were constantly harassed even though we were with a guy. We did have a nice picnic on the lawn of the Eiffel tower and walk down the Seine from about 1:30-5:30 in the morning, pretty cool, but that not the safest thing to do.

Address: Trocadero
