1) Eiffel Tower

What would Paris be without its symbolic Eiffel Tower? Built by Gustave Eiffel to commemorate the centenary of the French Revolution, it is presented at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1889.It is one of the most visited monuments in the world with nearly 7 million visitors a year.The ascent of the Eiffel Tower is a must to enjoy the magnificent view of Paris. Tickets booths are located at the foot of the tower, you can go up via one of the two elevators, but after standing in line several hours, especially in summer. The first floor houses the Eiffel Tower 58 which extends over two levels, 58 meters above the ground as its name suggests. On the second floor, the view is the best at 115 meters because you have a diving view on the ground below. Finally on the 3rd floor at 275 meters, you can see what the office of Gustave Eiffel was.

2)Notre DameOne of the most enduring symbols of Paris: Notre-Dame de Paris, also known as Notre Dame, a Roman Catholic cathedral is located on the eastern half of the Ile de la Cit.It is widely considered one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture in France and Europe. Begun in 1163 and completed in 1345, this cathedral is a sight with its portals surrounded by his many sculptures and gargoyles that adorn the roof.

4) Arch of TriumphBuilt in the 19th century, it is the largest monument of its kind in the world. Impressive sculptures adorn its pillars.
