Some of the most recognizable sights in Paris include the Arc de Triomphe and the Palais des Congrès, the famous archway and concert hall, respectively. During your next trip to France, stay close to these two sights for the perfect view of Paris.
Bring your camera, as some of the top spots in the city are worthy of a framed picture in your home.
The Arc de Triomphe is the grand welcoming archway that rests in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle. Completed in 1836, the structure was designed to honor French soldiers who fought during the Napoleonic Wars and continues to ooze its themes of strength, power, and honour. While most people know of the above-ground section, there is also a space under the arch that’s home to the Tomb of the Unknown Solider from World War I. This is also where the Memorial Flame continues to burn in the spirit of those lives lost in conflict. Once you’re done with your tour of the Arc, head 1 km west to the Palais des Congrès. This major centre plays host to a number of concert and theatre productions, as well as conventions. It’s rare for a weekend to go by without the curtain rising on something entertaining and special. Book your tickets and give yourself a treat to a first-rate show after your day of sightseeing.
