I've been told Paris is the most romantic city in the world. Then again I remember my ex-boss telling me he found nothing "romantic" about Paris at all... it is simply a bustling city full of people. A girl would wonder if love flying all over the air of Paris? This city is obviously a popular location for pre-wedding photoshoot. I have not been to Paris but would love to experience it for myself one day of its romance and visit beautiful places like these:
Eiffel TowerInaugurated in 1889 for the Universal Exposition, the Eiffel Tower ( La Tour Eiffel in French) was the tallest structure in the world then until the completion of the Chrysler Building in 1930. The man behind the Eiffel Tower was engineer Gustave Eiffel. Constructed with a mass of wrought iron, the lattice tower rises 300 meters tall (984 feet), is now an iconic tourist destination in Paris. There is a viewing area up the tower for you to enjoy the spectacular views of Paris. The pre-wed crew can embrace the impressive structure at night in a different way with the lighted tower. It is located at Champ de Mars (a large public greenspace) 7e arrondissement, next to the Seine River.

the LouvreOriginally a royal palace, the Louvre became a public museum in 1793 with an exhibition of 537 painting. There are about 35,000 objects on display now, spread out over three wings of the former palace. The museum has a diverse collection mostly of European paintings and sculptures. It also contains Roman, Egyptian, Greek and Oriental art, clocks, furniture, china and tapestries. Some of the most famous works of art in the museum are the Venus of Milo, the Nike of Samothrake, the Dying Slave by Michelangelo and the most popular of them all; Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa.
There are three entrances, the main entrance at the glass pyramid, second entrance from the Carrousel du Louvre underground shopping mall and another entrance at the Porte des Lions. The Louvre Pyramid was built by American architect I.M. Pei in 1989. The Louvre museum lies in the heart of Paris on the Right Bank, the place is known as the 1st arrondissement adjacent to the Tuileries Gardens. Use of cameras and video recorders is permitted inside but the use of flashes is forbidden. Take a look at how our talented PGs shot in innovative angles and perspectives.

This cathedral of the Catholic Archdiocese of Paris has a gothic exterior which is full of intricate details, two broad towers and many sweeping arches. The ornate interior is light and airy, with beautiful sculptures and stained glass. Construction started in 1163 and completed in 1330. You are able to capture a better view of the architecture in photos from the Square Jean XXIII Park behind the cathedral.
