Visit the historic Gros-Horloge, an astronomical clock dating back to the 14th century, and the Place du Vieux-Marché, where Joan of Arc was martyred.



Paris, the enchanting capital of France, is a city of timeless beauty and cultural richness. Known as the “City of Light,” Paris is home to iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame Cathedral, and the Louvre Museum, which houses the Mona Lisa.
