Best spots to Discover paris

the effeil tower 

The Eiffel Tower is to Paris what the Statue of Liberty is to  New York and what  Big Ben is to  London: the ultimate emblem.

The French engineer  Gustave Eiffel, already famous for the construction of viaducts and bridges, worked for two years to erect this emblematic monument of the Universal Exhibition of 1889. It also salutes the centenary of the French Revolution.

Today, it is certainly at night that it is most beautiful, when it is highlighted in a sparkling show. The latter was only intended to be used for the year 2000, but it was so popular that the 20,000 bulbs were reinstalled for permanent use in 2003.

The Iron Lady does her electric dance for five minutes every hour from dusk to one o’clock in the morning. Very visited, expect to queue to climb to the top!


The Louvre is none other than the best art museum in the world but also the most visited. With 210,000 m² of exhibitions, where we find works from almost all civilizations in the world, it is also the largest.

The three most popular works here are The Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo and the Winged Victory of Samothrace The museum opened to the public in 1793, after the French Revolution, and became a symbol of national heritage and culture.

The Louvre is famous for its iconic glass pyramid, designed by architect I.M. Pei, which serves as the main entrance and a skylight for the underground lobby.

The Arc de Triomphe

The Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile is one of the most famous monuments in Paris, France, standing at the western end of the Champs-Élysées at the centre of Place Charles de Gaulle, formerly named Place de l’Étoile—the étoile or “star” of the juncture formed by its twelve radiating avenues. The location of the arc and the plaza is shared between three arrondissements, 16th, 17th, and 8th. The Arc de Triomphe honours those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, with the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces. Beneath its vault lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I.

La Basilique du Sacré-Cœur

It’s hard not to believe that you are ascending to heaven when you visit the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, this white castle perched at the top of Montmartre ( see the route of the walk in Montmartre to the Sacré-Coeur). The French government commissioned it in 1873, after the devastating years of the Paris Commune and the Franco-Prussian War.

It was the architect  Paul Abadie who built the Sacred Heart, using Romanesque and Byzantine elements for its design. Construction lasted until World War I, and the basilica was finally consecrated in 1919.
