Paris, Banks of the Seine
From the Louvre to the Eiffel Tower, from the Place de la
Concorde to the Grand and Petit Palais, the evolution of Paris and its
history can be seen from the River Seine. The Cathedral of Notre-Dame
and the Sainte Chapelle are architectural masterpieces while Haussmann's
wide squares and boulevards influenced late 19th- and 20th-century town
planning the world over.
