Notre Dame de Paris
This beautiful and elaborate cathedral is known for its sharp spires and flying buttresses built in the Gothic style. Sadly, you can only view the exterior of the cathedral due to the tragic fire in 2019.


Arc de Triomphe
The majestic Arc de Triomphe was initially conceived by Napoleon Bonaparte in the early 19th century to depict the glory of its conquering armies. Today, it is hailed as a masterpiece of romantic neoclassicism.

On French National Day, July 14, a military parade commences at the Arc de Triomphe and proceeds through the Champs-Elyees.



Sat atop the Butte Montmarte, the Sacré-Coeur is a Roman Catholic church dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Consecrated in 1919, it offers some of the most beautiful panoramic views of the city from its white marble dome.
