Paris: 9 Can’t Miss Sights You Will Love

How many words have been written about Paris? It is the city of romance, art, architecture, and the world leader in food and culture. But did you know that Paris got its nickname “The City of Light” not from its enlightened culture but from the 56,000 gas lamps that lit it up starting in the 1860s? Of course, the Paris of today has lights for its beautiful cultural monuments and buildings, including the gorgeously lit Eiffel Tower at night. Day or night, Trovers from around the world have found the top sights in Paris and captured them for you. Find below our top sights in Paris. Allons-y!
