Holiday highlights

Eiffel Tower
The tower was built for the International Exhibition of Paris of 1889 commemorating the centenary of the French Revolution. The Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII of England, opened the tower. Of the 700 proposals submitted in a design competition, Gustave Eiffel's was unanimously chosen. It is the tallest structure in Paris and possibly the most recognized symbol in the world. It is the most visited monument in the world; 6,428,441 people visited the tower in 2005.
The Louvre Museum
It is the largest, oldest, most important and famous art gallery and museum in the world. The Louvre has a long history of artistic and historic conservation, from the Capetian dynasty until today. The building was previously a royal palace, and is famous for holding several of the world's most prestigious works of art, such as Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, The Virgin and Child with St. Anne, Madonna of the rocks and Alexandros of Antich's Venus de Milo.
The Arc de Triomphe 
This is a monument that stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle, formerly the Place de l'Etoile, at the western end of the Champs Elysees. It is the linchpin of the historic axis (L'Axe historique) leading from the courtyard of the Louvre Palace, a sequence of monuments and grand thoroughfares on a route leading out of Paris. The monument stands over 51 meters (167 feet) in height and is 45 meters (148 feet) wide. It is the second largest triumphal arch in existence. Its design was inspired by the Roman Arch of Titus; The Arc de Triomphe is so colossal that an early daredevil flew his plane through it.
Notre Dame
Probably the most famous Gothic cathedral, Notre-Dame is a superb example of the Rayonnant style. Two massive Early Gothic towers crown the western facade, which is divided into three stories and has doors adorned with Early Gothic carvings and surmounted by a row of figures of Old Testament kings. The single-arch flying buttresses at the eastern end are notable for their boldness and grace. Its three great rose windows, which retain their 13th-century glass, are of awe-inspiring beauty. Notre Dame de Paris is French for "Our Lady of Paris", meaning the church in Paris dedicated to the Virgin Mary.  While a major tourist destination, it is still used as a Roman Catholic cathedral.
