Best of Parisian Monuments



Description:

A list of not_to-be-missed Parisian monuments starting to the west of Paris at the city's outskirts with the Arche de La Defense and its esplanade -- a modern architectural paradise. From the esplanade at La Defense head back into Paris through the Arc de Triomphe down the Champs Elysées and along the right bank crossing over the Seine only to get a gander at the Eiffel Tower and then re-crossing via Les Invalides over to the right bank once again, where heading East, you will continue on down through the Jardin de Tuileries, over to the Palais Royal and finally take a turn around the roundabout and the monument at Bastille and finally over to collapse in the park in front of one of the fountains at the magestic Place des Vosges. You can, of course, do this in reverse and instead relax on the steps of the Arch at La Defense and admire the view.
