The Arc de Triomp du Carrousel is near the Louvre, and not near the main Arc de Triomphe. It is spectacular at any time of the night or day, and is definitely worth adding to your list of things to see whilst in Paris.

Located across from the Louvre Museum, this ARC is easy to locate. It is smaller than the Arc de Triomphe, but still ok to visit and admire. There are some statues near it. Behind this Arc is a big wide open space that looks like...More

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops
