7 Places That Are Even Better When All Lit Up

For thousands of years, humans have been fascinated with the golden glow of lights. Chasing lights across the world can be your next travel plan and Lastminute.com users suggest 5 magical places. 

1. Paris, France: Did you know the Eiffel Tower once lit up is considered a separate art installation?

Lastminute.com reviewer shares, "The weather wasn't that great, but we went for business for fashion week. We had a delightful time, the Eiffel Tower was beautiful to see all lit up. It wasn't too crowded either."

Lastminute.com reviewer shares, "Paris was sunny but a bit chilly at times in the evening. We visited the Arc the Triomphe which has amazing views of Paris from the top and saw the Eiffel Tower which was beautifully lit up at night. We also took a dinner cruise on the river Seine which was an amazing experience. The food in Paris was also really nice."

2. Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Cross the Dubai Creek on a fully lit up boat

Lastminute.com reviewer says, "The temperature was 28 to 30 degrees. We didn't eat out as the food provided in the hotel (Jumeirah Creekside was part of the deal we had. We spent one day at the Dubai Mall. We had a courtesy bus to and from the hotel. From the top of our hotel we could see a lot of the sights and at night it became even more pretty as everything was lit up. The boats travelling up and down the river were also lit up in different colours."

3. Rome, Italy: Watch the Trevi Fountain come alive with lights

Lastminute.com reviewer adds, "Rome was amazing from the outset - we loved every minute of our time there. From brilliant food, history around every corner and lovely weather. My favourite city break so far! It was very hard to leave and we will definitely be going back in a few years. Can't recommend it enough. Trevi fountain (go at night and see it lit up! "

4. Budapest, Hungary: Take the evening cruise across Danube and watch the bridge light up

Lastminute.com reviewer says, "Would definitely recommend for a break for a few days here. Lovely city with great restaurants and great local beers. Would absolutely recommend the thermal baths and taking a cruise down the Danube during the evening as the city looks incredible all lit up (especially the wine cruise). "

5. Berlin, Germany: Enjoy a drink at the candle lit bars of Berlin

Lastminute.com reviewer adds, "Berlin is amazing, it has so much to experience. I definitely recommend seeing the museum island, the Berlin Wall, the topography of terror. There are loads of little quaint bars that are all almost lit by candles, look for bar "o" and his gin and basil smash"

6. Brussels, Belgium: Visit the Grand place at night, all lit up for a fairy-tale experience

Lastminute.com reviewer adds, "Weather was windy but managed to stay mostly dry for my long weekend stay. There was so much to see, do not miss a visit to the Grand Place such beautiful architecture, please make sure you make a second trip to the Grand place at night too. It is gorgeous when it is all lit up. Lots and lots of shopping, balanced with loads of monuments and lovely cathedrals to visit. "

7. Amsterdam, Netherlands: Go on a night canal cruise and enjoy a magical sight of Amsterdam

Lastminute.com reviewer adds, "The weather was lovely and sunny although not too hot as it was only february, it never rained and was rarely grey. We did the typical tourist stuff eg Anne Frank house, ice bar, canal cruise and museums. Highly recommend a night time canal cruise as it was lovely seeing Amsterdam all lit up."
