It serves multiple functions, housing the local administration, and the Mayor of Paris. Notre Dame first built in the 12th Century is often reputed to be one of the most prominent examples of Gothic architecture in both France and in Europe as a whole. The École Militaire ,founded by Louis XV in 1750, is a vast complex of buildings housing various military training facilities located in the 7th arrondissement next to the Champ de Mars near the Eiffel Tower. The Eiffel Tower named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the toweras the entrance arch to the 1889 World's Fair, it has become both a global cultural icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world. The tower is the tallest structure in Paris and the most-visited paid monument in the world; 7.1 million people ascended it in 2011. The Musée du Louvre is one of the world's largest museums, the most visited art museum in the world and a historic monument. Nearly 35,000 objects from prehistory to the 19th century are exhibited over an area of 60,600 square metres (652,300 square feet). The Arc de Triomphe is one of the most famous monuments in Paris. It stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle (originally named Place de l'Étoile), at the western end of the Champs-Élysées. less

Six pictures every second. The video style is less about any one image, but about the overall sensation or impression. Kinda like the trip, when you're on the move experiencing new things minute by minute, day after day. It all flies by. less

Everybody know everybody from the butcher to the art gallery or the cafe. On the island, there is an hotel called Hotel du Jeu de Paume because it's placed in a former jeu de paume room (former tennis). It's cute, people are nice and polite (and it isn't always the case in Paris) and it is said to be one of the most romantic hotels in the capital. Enjoy! The video is in French. http://www.jeudepaumehotel.com less
