This first one I took from along the Seine as the sun was setting. You can see the Eiffel Tower behind the buildings to the left. The quay along the river is a great place. The last time I was in Paris, I went there every morning with a croissant or a baguette to sit and hang out. It's peaceful.
The Seine can be seen in this next one, too. The object of the photo is the Conciergerie. This was first a palace, then a prison, and now a museum. Marie Antoinette was kept here during her last days before she was guillotined. The Pont Napoléon is the bridge crossing the river.
This is the Tuileries, a garden next to the Louvre. This photo was taken in April, when the tulips were in bloom.
Here are a few photos of Notre Dame, starting with the interior of the cathedral.
This next one is the Louvre Museum. Usually photos of the Louvre show the glass pyramid in the middle of the courtyard. The Louvre is a U-shaped building, and this is one of the ends of the U. The Louvre is big. Really, really big. During my most recent trip, I went there three times and still didn't see everything. It is said that if you spent sixty seconds looking at each object on display in the Louvre, it would take you months of looking for 24 hours each day to see it all. Louis XIV used to ride horses through the corridors.
I'll end with two iconic monuments of Paris, the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe.
The Arc de Triomphe is located in the middle of an enormous traffic circle at the end of the Champs-Élysées. Twelve roads meet here. You have to cross underground to get to the monument itself, which has an unknown soldier memorial underneath the arch.
