Taylor Swift knows how to sell out an arena, but that doesn't mean she's above playing small shows. Earlier this week, the pop-country star performed at an intimate private concert on a yacht for her Parisian fans.

Dressed in a simple black number, the 23-year-old played an acoustic set aboard the Yachts de Paris Mirage Cruise on the Seine River. The special event took place just one day after the 2013 NRJ Awards in Cannes where Swift sang 'We Are Never Getting Back Together' with her former flame Harry Styles in the audience.

Before the yacht performance, Swift was spotted enjoying the sights of Paris with her friend, 'True Grit' actress Hailee Steinfeld. The pair took a tour of the Eiffel Tour and hung out in Luxembourg Garden. Swift even tweeted a photo, saying, "Had the best day off in Paris, meandering around, laughing hysterically with @haileesteinfeld."

Later, she posted another pic in front of a merry-go-round, writing, "You never know when you might happen upon the most perfect carousel." Steinfeld replied with the tweet: " Life Is A Merry Go Round. @taylorswift13."

Following her private performance, Taylor sent a special message to her European fans. "Thank you to all the fans in France and Spain for making this trip so lovely. Headed back to [America] now!"
