Read on dear reader to see where you may want to go this summer.

 

Did you know why it is called the City of Lights?

 

In the 17th century France, civil unrest was a long-lasting problem during the reign of King Louis XIV in the early 1600s. Frightened by the consequences of crime, the king asked an innovative chief of police to come up with a solution. He installed street lights in the city rather than allowing the numerous criminals to evade the city’s police or commit offenses. Paris was among the first cities to introduce this innovative practice in Europe.

 

Here are our top picks of what to do:

 

Go to the Eiffel tower…

Paris is known for its many famous attractions, including the Eiffel Tower. The tower was built in 1889 as the entrance to the World’s Fair. It was not supposed to be a permanent fixture, but it became so popular that it was left up. The tower is 1,063 feet high and has three levels that visitors can visit.

And you can travel to the top of the tower for 25 euros.
