It is the most popular tourist destination in the world, with 23 million unique visitors every year. The city's Louvre Museum houses what could possibly be considered the most famous painting in the world, the Mona Lisa. It is also home to another stunning museum, Musee d’Orsay, with numerous French artworks from the late 1800s and early 1900s. What makes the museum unique is that it was originally a railway terminal.
The Notre Dame in Paris is one of the most renowned cathedrals in the world, and is one of the most stunning examples of French Gothic architecture, and another worthy reason to visit this splendid city.
