You will see the famous ring road in Paris with so many cars, trucks, buses and kilometers of périphérique (French for ring road).
This road is simply the worst in France and possibly the World. With multiple lanes looping 35 km around Paris, the Périphérique (French for ring-road) should be the easiest way to get from one side of the French capital to the other. Shouldn’t it?
In reality, mass disruption, pollution and a divide between the city center and its suburbs make the Périphérique a headache for motorists, nearby residents, and city planners. With breakdowns, accidents, construction work on new transport links, and regular closures at different access points, you can bet that a lot of those hours have been spent on the Périphérique.
You will see on the road, the Triumphal Arc
The Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile is one of the most famous monuments in Paris. It stands in the center of the Place Charles de Gaulle at the western end of the Champs-Élysées. The Arc de Triomphe (Triumphal Arch) honours those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, with the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces. if you want, you can visit the top of the Arc, to have the all city viewing, this is a wonderful experience !
Beneath its vault lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I.
And you will cross the incredible and big Charles de Gaulle place where you can see both of these important symbols in Paris.

You can’t miss the Yves Saint Laurent Museum on the way!
Paris is considered one of the top fashion capitals of the world and in this city, major designers such as Dior, Chanel, Hermes, and Christian Louboutin have reigned for years. Their logos and designs are world famous and adorn millions of bags, fashions, and jewelry. One of the most recognizable is the iconic YSL monogram—-of Yves Saint Laurent. In early October 2017, the Musée Yves Saint Laurent was unveiled in Paris. It is located at the original haute couture house where the fashion legend spent many years (1974-2002) designing and creating his collections. It’s worth a visit to this museum as his designs bring back memories of celebrities who wore his clothes during the 60s, 70s, and 80s. The museum is designed with a subdued, yet unique style, much like Saint Laurent himself.
You can admire the Flame of Liberty
The Flame of Liberty (Flamme de la Liberté) in Paris is a full-sized, gold-leaf-covered replica of the new flame at the upper end of the torch carried in the hand of the Statue of Liberty (Liberty Enlightening the World) at the entrance to the harbor of New York City since 1886. The monument, which measures approximately 3.5 meters in height, is a sculpture of a flame, executed in gilded copper, supported by a pedestal of gray-and-black marble. It is located near the northern end of the Pont de l’Alma, on the Place de l’Alma, in the 8th arrondissement of Paris.
