Why is Paris called the City of Lights?
Paris was nicknamed the "City of Light" (not City of Lights) originally because it was a vast center of education and ideas during the Age of Enlightenment. In 1828, Paris began lighting the Champs-Elysées with gas lamps. It was the first city in Europe to do so, and so earned the nickname "La Ville-Lumière" or The City of Light.

On the other hand, more literally, Paris is one of the most- lit city in the world. In 1828, Paris began lighting the Champs Elysées with gas lamps. It was the first city in Europe to do so, and so it reinforce the nickname "La Ville-Lumière" or The City of Light.
