Places to Visit in Paris After Your Conference:
Paris is such a wonderful city to visit, and as such there are plenty of sights for conference delegates to enjoy. Indeed, the Eiffel Tower – at 324 metres high – is one of the most famous monuments in the world. It was built back in 1889 and has since been used as everything from a giant lightning rod (it has been struck more than 7,000 times since 1889) to a radio antenna. And on top of this, the Eiffel Tower has also provided Paris with some great new nicknames over the years – it was famously used as a giant sundial back in 1909 and was even referred to as the “Iron Lady” by Marshal Petain during the Second World War.
Other top attractions in Paris include the Catacombs, a series of underground tunnels that house the remains of more than six million people who died during the 17th and 18th centuries – many bodies were placed here after it was decided that graveyards were becoming overcrowded. You can also visit Place de la Concorde, which is home to some of Paris’ most famous landmarks, such as the Luxor Obelisk and a pair of stone fountains that were gifted to France by the people of Egypt back in 1829.
In addition to all these amazing sights, you should also consider visiting the Arc de Triomphe – this historic monument was built back in 1806 and is located at the centre of Place Charles de Gaulle.
