The Very Beautiful Arc de Triomphe
Paris is in no way overrated – at least from what I’ve seen there so far. There is a unique feel about the city, and every other building is a classic piece in style. If you can take public smoking in cafes and restaurants, and make an effort at French, pleasure is almost a guarantee here. It is hard to choose a favorite monument in Paris, I’m torn between the very obvious (and deserving) Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe. What earns the latter brownie points is the fact that it is conveniently at the end of a busy shopping street – your ideal treat after a day of senseless splurging.
