Paris is inviting, charming, and even legendary, which is why travellers have been attracted to visit this glorious city. If you are planning to visit this beautiful city, here are some of the top places you can visit:
While the most popular symbol of Paris is the Eiffel tower, but the greatest prize is the Louvre. Considered as the world’s greatest museum, it houses the three most popular pieces in the world such as the Mona Lisa, Winged Victory, and the Venus de Milo. It is also the largest museums with 675,000 square feet. Don’t worry about getting lost though because once you are inside, you are bound to find something special.
Notre Dame de Paris
Notre Dame de Paris is a popular and symbolic destination for travellers and even for many locals. There are a lot of things to see and admire inside the Gothic cathedral that includes its famous windows and the unforgettable views of the city and the exterior architectural details of the church that are framed by stone gargoyles.
The cathedral which was made in 1163 and completed in 1345, was also badly damaged during the Revolution but was restored to its glory by architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc in the 19th century. Although the cathedral is not the largest in France or the oldest, it is considered as one of the most beautiful in the world.
Rue des Martyrs
The city of Paris’s old market streets is often ignored by travellers as they travel from one monument to the next. But this is a mistake because the Rue des Martyrs is where you will find an authentic piece of Paris. Here you will find an old neighbourhood market that has been running for over two hundred years. With everything from fruit to fish, high-end pastry shops, gourmet cafes, chocolatiers, chic boutiques, and so much more.
