Explore Paris: The City of Lights!

Paris is the place that all tourists flock to, and these are the places they’re traveling there to see:

Eiffel Tower- Located in between the Champ de Mars Park and the Seine River in the west end of Paris, the Eiffel Tower is arguably the most famous landmark in the world. Named after Gustave Eiffel whose company built and designed the tower, the Eiffel Tower was constructed in two years for the World’s Fair of 1889. The tower now serves as the center of key events in the city, including Bastille Day and New Year’s celebrations. In order to save time and prevent hassle when you arrive at the tower, be sure to buy your tickets online, which cost 16 euro if you’re just visiting the second floor and 26 euro if you’re going all the way to the top.

Louvre Museum- Sitting on the north shore of the Seine River next to the Tuileries Garden is the Louvre Museum, one of the world’s most famous museums. Established in 1793, the Louvre is the largest art museum in the world, with over 700,000 square feet of space and around 38,000 objects exhibited. The Louvre is also the most visited museum in the world, with over ten million visitors roaming its halls annually. Famous works housed in the Louvre include the Mona Lisa, The Coronation of Napoleon, The Raft of the Medusa, and The Venus de Milo. The Louvre is open every day of the week except Tuesday, and ticket prices are 15 euro, so be sure to visit the historic Louvre when you’re in Paris.

Notre Dame Cathedral- Located on an island in the middle of the Seine River not too far from the Louvre Museum, the Notre Dame Cathedral is one of the most beautiful architectural wonders in the world. With construction beginning all the way back in the twelfth century, the Notre Dame Cathedral is famous the world over for its large organ and church bells, and was the site of Napoleon’s coronation and many French presidential funerals. Although the cathedral was recently severely damaged by fire, passers by still say that its worth the visit to see it from the outside.
