The Eiffel Tower is one of the two great symbols of Paris most known to foreigners. Originally intended as a temporary structure for the great exhibition ( and centenary of the French revolution) it has now become a permanent part of Paris, despite being totally out of keeping with the beautiful architecture and layout of the Champ de Mars.

|Place du Tertre is an open-air artist's quarter. You can watch everything from serious art to caricatures in the making, and all in the shadow of the Sacré Coeur Basilica.||The area around Montmartre is alive with the culture of the night: prostitutes, transvestites, sex shops and extravagant costume shows such as at the Moulin Rouge.|
