Paris, France is truly one of our world's greatest cities and a top travel destination. Many of its streets are lined with beautiful artistry - sculptures, murals, statues, and historic buildings. The Promenade between Champs d' elysee and Notre Dame Cathedral, paralleling the Seine, is a pleasant, peaceful walk that is lined with sculptures and gardens. This page has photos of the major tourist attractions including the Louvre - one of the world's great museums, the Arc de Triumphe, the Eiffel Tower, and Notre Dame Cathedral. I hope you enjoy these pictures of Paris. You can also try viewing these photos of Paris using the Slideshow below. TheWorldinLight also has a webpage dedicated to some of the Sculptures of Paris.
