Next on our list is the Notre Dame Cathedral, one of the most enduring symbols of Paris, and one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in France and Europe.
Next stop is the Louvre museum, a historic building with an area of 210,000 square meters including 60,600 exhibitions. The museum was originally a fortress built in the late 12th century. The Arc of triumph or Champs Elysees is one of the largest monuments of its kind. It has the names of 558 generals, and the great victories are engraved on the top. And did you know that under the Arc of Triumph there is a tomb of an unknown soldier of France?
If you wish to see why Paris is called the City of Lights, you must take a cruise on the Seine river, especially at night. In the panoramic view to the forefront when the monuments are lit at sunset, you can enjoy the real beauty of Paris. The next place you cannot miss is Montmartre, a 130 meters hill located in the north of Paris. The hill is known for its white-doomed basilica of the Sacred Heart.
