Place de la Concorde
The Place de la Concorde is one of the major squares in Paris with its Egyptian obelisk.The Place was designed by Ange-Jacques Gabriel in 1755 as a moat-skirted octagon between the Champs-?lys?es to the west and the Tuileries Gardens to the east. The views are magnificent towards the Arc de Triomphe and the D?fense, and towards the Louvre.At the north end, two magnificent identical stone buildings were constructed. Separated by the rue Royale, these structures remain among the best examples of that period's architecture. Initially they served as government offices, and the eastern one is the French Naval Ministry. Shortly after its construction, the western building was made into the luxurious H?tel de Crillon.

Montmartre & Pigalle
Montmartre, settled on Paris’s highest hill, offers the most beautiful view of the city. Famous for its winding roads and steep hillside stairs, it is also home to one of the world’s most recognizable churches, Sacre C?ur. This zone cradles a number of intimate sidewalks cafes and lays claim to the city’s main red-light district: Pigalle. Touristy sex-clubs like the Moulin Rouge as well as bars and pubs clutter the place. Both areas are dominated by a festive atmosphere.

La D'efense & La Grande Arche
With 3.5 millions of square meters of offices, 150,000 workers and more than 20,000 habitants, La D?fense is the first business district in Europe. Visiting La D?fense will be an unforgettable architectural adventure. The Grande Arche is a contemporary monument, a masterpiece of technology and architecture. Access to the top is via panoramic lifts, the only ones of this kind. The panoramic viewpoint offers an exceptional view over Paris and its surroundings, as well as the city's historical thoroughfare. Amazing view of Paris from a height of 110 meters.

FBG St-Honore Area and Opera Garnier
Although there are a lot of relaxing and interesting walks to take in this area, its main assets are doubtless the Opera Garnier and the world famous big-name fashion houses that are located on the Faubourg and Rue St-Honore.In the middle of the Opera Boulevard, you can find the Opera which is a masterpiece of theatre architecture of the 19th century.Not to be missed: the famous ceiling of the Opera Room by Chagall.

Le Louvre
"Open to all since 1793": From the outset, the Louvre has embodied the concept of a truly "universal" institution. Universal in the scope of its collections, it is also universal in its appeal to some 6 million visitors every year: a 21st-century museum rooted in 200 years of innovation. The Louvre Museum presents collections of western art from the Middle Ages to 1850, and the ancient civilizations that have preceded and influenced this art. They are divided into 8 departments: Oriental Antiquities, Islamic Art, Egyptian Antiquities, Greek, Etruscan and Roman Antiquities and, for the modern period, Paintings, Sculptures, Art items, Prints and Drawings until 1848.

Notre Dame de Paris
Masterpiece of gothic architecture, the cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris, created by Bishop Maurice de Sully, was built between the 12th and the 14th centuries (1163-1345). The French road distances are established from the "0 km" point located on the square in front of the cathedral entrance. You can also visit the Treasure of Notre-Dame.

Front de Seine & Eiffel Tower
This district has two different faces. The southern part flows with normal Parisian life and the streets offer nothing but what the everyday life is made of. On the northern part houses many of the most famous monuments of the city, some of them even being worldwide symbols of France, such as the world famous Eiffel Tower. The Champs-de-Mars, the D?me des Invalides and the Orsay Museum which is said to be “the most beautiful Museums in Europe” are also to be found here.
