“Just add three letters to Paris, and you have paradise.” — Jules Renard

Now that most countries are opening up after the pandemic, I had the honour of visiting one of my favourite cities. Paris is definitely one place that you never tire of visiting.

Paris, France’s capital, is a major European city and a global centre for art, fashion, gastronomy and culture. Its 19th-century cityscape is crisscrossed by wide boulevards and the River Seine. Beyond lie such landmarks as the Eiffel Tower, and Arche de Triomphe.

Although my visit was brief, it was enough for me to enjoy some of the most famous monuments. The Eiffel Tower is a wrought-iron lattice tower on the Champ de Mars in Paris, France. It is named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower.

The Arche de Triomphe de l’Étoile is one of the most famous monuments in Paris, France, standing at the western end of the Champs-Élysées at the centre of Place Charles de Gaulle, formerly named Place de l’Étoile—the étoile or “star” of the juncture formed by its twelve radiating avenues.

If you have the opportunity to visit this city, you won’t be disappointed.
