Crossing Grands Boulevards
Paris remained structurally a medieval city until 1852, when the transformation of the capital was ordered by the then emperor, Napoleon III. To carry out the immense project, Napoleon III appointed Georges Haussmann, making him “prefect of the Seine”.
Hausmann restructured the boulevards, giving them their characteristic form: long and straight with wide sidewalks. The boulevards’ new structure made them a center for theater and café culture in Belle-Epoque Paris.
From Porte Saint Martin and Porte Saint Denis to the great Mosque of Paris
he Porte Saint-Martin was designed by architect Pierre Bullet (a student of François Blondel, architect of the nearby Porte Saint-Denis) at the order of Louis XIV in honor of his victories on the Rhine and in Franche-Comté. Built in 1674, it replaced a medieval gate in the city walls built by Charles V. It was restored in 1988.

The Pantheon and rue Moufetard
To really take the area’s pulse, head to its liveliest commercial street, medieval rue Mouffetard, a colourful jumble of student bars, cheap eateries, market stalls and inexpensive clothing and homewares shops.
Le Jardin du Luxembourg and Ride around the Latin Quarter
(so named because university students here communicated in Latin until the French Revolution and it was renowned worldwide as an intellectual incubator), the centre of academic life in Paris. The quarter centres on the Sorbonne’s main university campus, which is graced by fountains and lime trees. In the surrounding area you’ll encounter students and professors lingering at its late-opening bookshops and secondhand record shops on and around the ‘boul Mich’ (blvd St-Michel). You’ll also encounter them researching in its museums like the Musée National du Moyen Âge (aka Cluny); at the library within its exquisite art deco-Moorish mosque; in its botanic gardens, the Jardin des Plantes – or simply relaxing in its pigeon-filled squares and gardens.
Visiting Notre Dame de Paris ,
Notre-Dame de Paris is very old, over 800 years old! Appointed bishop of Paris in 1160, Maurice de Sully decided to give the capital a cathedral worthy of France’s largest city. He wanted to build it in the style of the day, now known as the gothic style
Ride on the southern bank of the river Seine
(views og Le Louvre, le musée d Orsay on the way), and then you will observe a full 360-degree panorama of famous sights from Place de la Concorde in Paris . The view spreads out around you, with sight of the Eiffel Tower, the Seine river and along the avenue Champs-Élysées. In the center of the palce de la Concorde there is 3300-year-old pink granite obelisk was a gift from Egypt in 1831 to Napoleon .
Take a stroll through the sprawling grounds of the Hôtel des Invalides, the 17th-century war veterans’ residence which includes a military museum and Napoleon’s tomb.
Wander west along the Seine to the Eiffel Tower.
Lifts yo-yo up and down the north, west and east pillars of Paris’ signature tower; change lifts on the 2nd floor for the final ascent to the top. (Anyone nervous will be relieved to know that the lifts are monitored by computer, and in the event of overloading they’re automatically immobilised and unable to leave.) If you’re feeling athletic, you can take the south pillar’s stairs – some 1665 of them – as far as the 2nd floor.

Montmartre is talked this incredibly unique village within the metropolis.
Montmartre was a tranquil village packed with vines and windmills, although two ‘moulins’ (windmills) and a small patch of vines do still exist. Today, perched high on the ‘Butte’ (Paris’s highest and most northerly hill), the area is tightly packed with houses, spiralling round the mound below the sugary-white dome of the Sacré-Coeur. it remains the most unabashedly romantic part of Paris – a place in which to climb quiet stairways, peer down narrow alleys onto ivy-clad houses, and watch the world go by in atmospheric cafés – especially along Rue des Abbesses, Rue des Trois Frères and Rue des Martyrs. Artists have historically been attracted to Montmartre since Renoir and Toulouse-Lautrec immortalised the cabarets here in the late 19th century; even today an arty vibe lives on thanks to the upwardly-mobile film, music and media types that have moved in..
