Arc de Triomphe in Paris

Arc de Triomphe in Paris is probably the most famous in the world. It was built between 1806 and 1836 and is located on Place Charles de Gaulle, at the west end of the Champs-Élysées avenue. It was built by Napoleon Bonaparte after the Battle of Austerlitz (1805) and designed by Jean Chalgrin and Jean-Arnaud Raymond who were inspired by the Arch of Titus in Rome.

Notre Dame Cathedral

Palais Garnier Opera, Paris

This place inspired Gaston Leroux when creating his famous work The Phantom of the Opera. The neo-baroque building is undoubtedly one of the most luxurious theaters in the world and is considered to be the largest theater in the world.
