From the Middle Ages to modern times, when sight seeing Paris, we subconsciously look at the history that unfolds right in front of our eyes. The architecture of Paris is rich and gets back way over centuries: from the time of Clovis to Napoleon III, through the Gothic architecture of the thirteenth century, not the mention the impact of the Italian Renaissance, and the preserved monuments of the Universal Exhibition (the Eiffel tower, Grand Palais), Paris is living proof of centuries of history. There is something for every taste on every street corner.
The word beauty takes a meaning for everyone in the French capital. In addition, the city is full of artistic experiences. It has more than 150 museums, including the Louvre and the Orsay Museum that appear on most of the world's best museums lists.
