Stand 50 metres above the middle of the world’s largest traffic roundabout with a trip to the Arc de Triomphe. The ‘triumphal arch’ was commissioned in 1806 by Napoleon to commemorate his victories, but remained unfinished until 1836. Visit at 6:30 pm to see the memorial flame rekindled each evening for the unknown WWI soldier laid to rest beneath the arch.

History of Paris
A trip to Paris wouldn’t be complete without seeing the city’s iconic building and one of the most famous structures in history. Built in 1889 and towering 320 metres over the city, it is undoubtedly the finest way to take in Paris. Early mornings or evenings are the best time to visit to avoid long queues.
From curbside to gallery and riverbank to courtyard, Paris is brimming with classical art, religious architecture and infamous feats of engineering. See the Mona Lisa, one of the world’s most famous paintings at The Louvre. The Centre Pompidou also has an impressive collection of art and is considered to be a modern masterpiece in its own right.
