Places to see in Paris
The Eiffel Tower is the most iconic symbol of Paris. It was Built by Gustave Eiffel to commemorate the centenary of the French Revolution. The tower was presented at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1889. 324 meters high, it is one of the most visited monuments in the world with nearly 7 million visitors a year. It actually takes an astonishing 50.000 litres of paint to paint the entire structure.
For the more adventurous of us it is possible to use the stairs and climb the 1665 steps to the summit, to enjoy the spectacular view. Others can use the elevator.
Champs Elysées / Arc of Triumph
Napoleon commissioned Jean Chalgrin to design a triumphal arch dedicated to the glory of imperial armies. It was built in the 19th century and is the largest monument of its kind in the world. It holds the names of 558 generals and the great victories are engraved on the top of the arc.
The panoramic terrace above the door offers a beautiful view of Paris. The Arc de Triomphe is located on the Place de l’Etoile which leads to the Champs Elysee. There are many luxury boutiques like Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Guerlain Montblanc in the area surrounding the Arc of Triumph.
Montmartre is best known for the white-domed Basilica of the Sacred Heart. It was completed in 1919 and and stands to honour the French victims of the Franco-Prussian war of 1870.
If you’re in the area you should visit the Square of Tertre just a few blocks from the Basilica. Here many artists paint tourists, or you could stroll to exhibit their work. Place du Tertre is a reminder of the time when Montmartre was the hub of modern art in the early 20th century.
Amedeo Modigliani, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh are all artists that used to work there, so this place is embraced in art history.
The famous cabaret Moulin Rouge is located in Montmartre.
