We first saw the Notre Dame de Paris cathedral at night, and even then you could see it was something to marvel at. We didn't tour the inside until later, but it was just as grand on the inside. Photo by Tim Stanley Photography.
The view of the Elizabeth Tower across from Portcullis House is a contrast of old vs. new.
Here is another view of the Grand Palais in Paris. It fits right in with the rest of the architectural style found throughout Paris and Europe, with the Roman influence of the large columns and the statues that rise above each entrance and corner of this spectacular building. Visit this site for a great animation of the the Grand Palais.
