If you want to take your Eiffel Tower experience to the next level, book one of the guided tours or download one of the many app guides which tell you everything you could ever want to know about it.
If you’d like to see another Paris emblem, consider visiting the Towers of Notre Dame Cathedral. This Catholic cathedral is regarded as one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture, with natural sculptures and stained glass which contrasts earlier Romanesque architecture. The outside of the towers are decorated in a Gothic style, with flying buttresses, spires, roofs, gargoyles, chimeras and the belfry.
