Monuments to see in Paris

From the gothic pearls of Notre-Dame and Sainte-Chapelle to the symbols of French grandeur like the classic Arc de Triomphe and state-of-the-art Grande Arche.
The Eiffel Tower remains the true symbol of France and, at night, it is the city’s most visible monument thanks to its spectacular lighting.
A night at the Opéra can also be an opportunity to appreciate the splendour of the Garnier Palace, a wonderful example of Eclecticism.
