Paris: Tour Montparnasse

A large number of stores are shuttered on Sunday, making the museum the best spot for the crowd to visit. I decided to visit Tour Montparnasse instead, a popular observation building set aside the Eiffel Tower. The tower, built in 1973, was one of the first tall skyscrapers in Paris.

Paris: Cruising Along River Seine

The real essence of Paris is captured by the River Seine that flows right through the heart of the city bordering 10 of the 20 arrondisements. The bridges along the river evoke the most romantic visions of Paris. Most people will agree with me that taking a stroll along the Seine is a quintessential Parisian experience. Like Fluctuat Nec Mergitur, a motto encrusted everywhere in Paris; It floats and doesn’t sink, reminds how important Seine is.

Paris: Palace of Versailles

It was another cold winter morning. I decided to head out early to catch the train to the Palace of Versailles, one of the largest and most opulent castles in the world. If you love history and architecture, you wouldn’t want to miss this. Getting to the majestic palace is pretty straight forward.

Paris: Grande Mosquée de Paris

I have seen the magnificent Basilica of Sacre Coeur, one of the most beautiful churches in Paris. I am in search of where Muslims in Paris seek solace and tranquillity. Tucked among the buildings, located in the Fifth Arrondissement, right in the heart of Paris is a beautiful 20th-century Grand Mosque (Grande Mosquée de Paris).
