From one of the highest spots in the capital, we plunge down into one of its deepest and, for that matter, spookiest. This is the underworld of Paris. The Catacombs de Paris, which are located in a vast network of ancient quarries under the streets of Paris, contain the remains of some six million people.

that is Created by Catherine de Medici in 1564, the park was fully opened to the public during the French Revolution (after some pretty horrific butchery took place there) and has been the place to stroll and relax since the 19th century.

10.Place de la Concorde

Place de la Concorde is situated at the end of the Champs-Elysées. Today it is famous for the Luxor Obelisk (a 3,300-year-old Egyptian obelisk erected on the square in October 1836), the surrounding prestigious hotels, and the two monumental fountains (Fontaine des Mers and Fontaine des Fleuves).

Place de la Concord spells reconciliation ,monument that would cool revolutionary and royalist passions.

Created in 1772, Place de la Concorde was originally known for having been an execution site during the French Revolution. Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette (among others) were guillotined here. Between 1836 and 1846 the architect Jacques-Ignace Hittorf redesigned the square to become what it is today.

This site to put terrible memories behind and pacifying revolutionary and royalist passions, its 23 meters and 230 tons of pink granite took four years to travel from Luxor!

Frequently described as ‘the world’s most beautiful avenue’, the Avenue des Champs-Élysées is a Paris must-see. Tourists and Parisians can be spotted strolling at any time of day or night and at any time of year along this iconic two-kilometer stretch between the Place de la Concorde and the Arc de Triomphe.

Like the Eiffel Tower, the avenue is a symbol of Paris. It is lined with luxury boutiques (Louis Vuitton, Mont-Blanc, Guerlain, Ferrari, etc.), flagship stores (Banana Republic, Abercrombie, Sephora, etc.) and nightclubs.

It is also the setting each year for major events such as the Bastille Day military parade, the arrival of the Tour de France and the Christmas lights. Finally, the Avenue des Champs-Elysées has some of the top museums in Paris: the Grand Palais, the Petit Palais, the Palais de la Découverte and the Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton.
