Though originally built as part of a temporary exhibit for the “Exposition Universelle” in 1889, the Eiffel tower in Paris is now one of the most famous landmarks in the world.

Mona Lisa

The most valuable painting in the world by Leonardo Da Vinci is hosted at the Louvre Museum in Paris (it is said that the woman in the painting seems to be watching you no matter what angle you look at the painting from)

Mont St. Michel

Mont St. Michel is an island off the coast of Normandy that hosts a beautiful medieval monastery. It is mostly interesting and famous as it becomes an island on high tide and can be walked to in low tide.
