Notre Dame

After a beautiful walk over the surrounding bridges, we arrived at the Notre Dame. An incredibly stunning cathedral with intricate detailing showing off the french gothic architecture. Additionally, at a cost, you can go up the Notre Dame and look at the view from a balcony at the top. I recommend taking a minute to glaze your eyes carefully over the cathedral to really take in all its carvings and designs. Around the Notre Dame there are plenty of restaurants and cafes to park yourself in if you plan on spending the day around the Notre Dame.

Arc De Triomphe

Situated overlooking the Champs-Elysees, the Arc  De Triomphe is at the centre of 12 avenues. Walking up the Champs-Elysees, a recommended route toward the Arc, you will get the best and most incredible view up the road. With a height of over 50m, from the top you’ll have a stunning view of Paris and the Eiffel Tower. Whilst the queues may be long the view are most definitely worth it. Though don’t spend all your time at the top as some of the best architectural detailing is underneath the arc and around the edges.
