Towering Attractions: Notre Dame, Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower

Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris’s fairytale Gothic masterpiece, sits on an island in the Seine. Make sure to appreciate its sweet 12th century symmetry and graceful stone supports from the cute Jean XXIII park just behind.

No Paris visit is complete without ascending the Eiffel Tower. This 19th century landmark (originally a temporary World’s Fair exhibit but so cool it was made permanent) offers unparalleled views. Escape the queues by booking a ticket online – family and other discounts are available. Couples, hit the summit champagne bar in the evening: you’ll struggle to find a more romantic spot in Paris.

The Eiffel Tower’s rival is the Arc de Triomphe, commemorating Napoleon’s greatest victory. From ground level, admire the detailed friezes mimicking Roman victory scenes, then climb to the top of the Arc de Triomphe to see the 12 great avenues of Paris segmenting the city.
