Isn't this view mesmerizing?

The lights of Paris

As twilight fades, the city of Paris lights up. Streets and buildings are bathed in light as well as grand monuments such as the Dôme des Invalides, seen in today's image. During his reign, King Louis XIV asked for streetlights to be erected throughout the city so that the police could catch lawbreakers easily, ensuring no dark alleys where they could hide. The locals were also asked to put up lanterns, and oil lamps, and lit candles on their windows.

Today, the City of Light is a dream destination for travelers who seek out museums, cuisine, and a romantic setting. The city has a lot of history to offer in the form of gardens, monuments, catacombs, and more, with volumes to be learned about the rich French and Parisian culture.
