However, show mercy to yourself and plan to visit only one of these magnificent buildings every day.
The Louvre. There’s not much that compares to the Louvre. Even walking through the yard will create gasoline when you encounter a large pyramid of I. M. Pei glass. The photos just don’t do it justice. The pyramid stands as a restless background to the half-size version of the Arc de Triomphe, which is part of Napoleon’s other arch. Voie Triomphale: (“Triumphal View”). This small arch rises from the Cathedral of St. Mark in Venice in a bronze horse-drawn chariot, which Napoleon visited in 1798 (the chariot has now been returned to its legal home and replaced with a copy). As you stand in this yard, the huge building that surrounds you ranges from the old to the old, which contains a 12th-century castle in a 16th-century palace.
To get to the Louvre, take the Batobus and jump at the Louvre stop. Look at the other side of the river, the stunning view of Orsa, the former train station, and now the inverted art museum, which you will visit another day.

Arc de Triomphe:. At Arc de Triomphe, take the tunnel under the rage of the monument surrounding the monument and spend some time reading the inscriptions.
