Tick off the bucket list at the Iconic Eiffel Tower with your Car Hire
With so much to do and so much to see, it can be hard to know where to start. The iconic Eiffel Tower, Paris’s most powerful and distinctive symbol of French imagination, literature, art, poetry, and expression was designed by French engineer Gustave Eiffel and opened at the Paris World Fair in 1889. Standing as the world’s tallest building for four decades, this historic masterpiece is one of the most famous structures in the world and a must-see on your next adventure to the French capital.
Only a stone’s throw away in your rental car, Musée du Louvre or Louvre Museum is an opulent palace of classical French antiquity and artwork. The resting place of some of the world’s most famous and prized artistic displays including Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, the ancient Greek Venus de Milo sculpture, the 2,200-year-old Winged Victory of Samothrace and Liberty Leading the People, a neoclassical delineation of the 1830 Parisian uprising. With a collection of over 460,000 pieces, even allocating just 30 seconds to each would take you 35 days to view them all.
Set to re-open at the commencement of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games after a devastating fire in 2019, Notre Dame Cathedral is one of Paris’s most famous historical and religious landmarks. Taking some 300 years to build, this stunning example of French Gothic architecture intertwined with the French renaissance and Naturalism era showcases an array of mediaeval artwork, furniture, and valuable Neo-Gothic depicted designs. Other incredible attractions to experience include the Musee d'Orsay for its vast collection of impressionist paintings, the Arc de Triomphe a renowned monument honouring soldiers of war in the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars and Versailles Palace the former royal residence of three 17th-century Bourbon Kings.
