Paris, which is also known as the city of lights, attracts people from all over the world because of its romantic cityscape, rich culture, great shopping, and the warmth of its people.
The most notable tourist attractions in Paris are the Eiffel Tower; The Musee du Louvre, Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Paris, Avenue des Champs-Elysees, Arc de Triomphe, and the River Seine.
The Eiffel tower has been the symbol of Paris for many years and offers tourists the best view of the city. You can take an elevator to the top or you can climb the stairs if you are physically able. The best time to visit is an hour before the sunset to witness the so called ‘golden hour.’ The Louvre is the oldest and the largest museum in the world, and features art from almost all cultures throughout history. The famous Mona Lisa painting is kept in this museum. The Avenue Des Champs-Elysees is filled with luxury shops that make it a great shopping destination for tourists.
