There are few sites that are recognizable the world over. This elite group includes the pyramids in Egypt, the Statue of Liberty in America, and of course, the Eiffel Tower in France. A symbol of romance, beauty, and strength, don’t miss the opportunity to see this famous landmark in person.
Unveiled during the 1889 World’s Fair, it was originally criticized for its bold design. Today, it’s one of the most visited sights in the world and considered a jewel of Paris.
Roughly 7 million people visit the tower each year to enjoy the view from the top. It’s also a popular spot for marriage proposals, though if you’re planning on doing this yourself, you may be competing with other love birds. Luckily, the restaurants on the first and second levels are a little less crowded if you want to get down on bended knee—or just have a first-class meal inside of one of the most notable structures on earth. If you love beautiful sites, you may also want to travel 3 km east to the Musee d’Orsay. Built inside a former railway station, this art museum is a marvel all its own. The large glass-paneled roof allows light to bounce throughout the building as you walk along the halls, admiring Impressionist paintings from yore.
