The house was co-founded in 1889 by Charles Zidler and Joseph Oller, who also owned the Paris Olympia
Moulin Rouge is best known as the spiritual birthplace of the modern form of the can-candance. Originally introduced as a seductive dance by the courtesans who operated from the site, the can-can dance revue evolved into a form of entertainment of its own and led to the introduction of cabarets across Europe. Today, Moulin Rouge is a tourist attraction, offering musical dance entertainment for visitors from around the world. The club's decor still contains much of the romance of fin de siècle France.

The Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile
is one of the most famous monuments in 
Paris. It stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle (originally named Place de l'Étoile), at the western end of the Champs-Élysées.It should not be confused with a smaller arch, the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, which stands west of the Louvre. The Arc de Triomphe (in English: "Triumphal Arch") honours those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and theNapoleonic Wars, with the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces. Beneath its vault lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I.

It houses the largest collection of impressionist and post-impressionist masterpieces in the world, by painters including MonetManetDegasRenoirCézanne,SeuratSisleyGauguin and Van Gogh. Many of these works were held at the Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume prior to the museum's opening in 1986.

The Tuileries Garden

Over 60% of its length, as far as Burgundy, is negotiable by commercial riverboats and nearly its whole length is available for recreational boating;excursion boats offer sightseeing tours of theRive Droite and Rive Gauche within the city of Paris.
Notre-Dame de Paris "Our Lady of Paris", 
, is a historic Catholic cathedral on the eastern half of the Île de la Cité in the fourth arrondissement of ParisFrance.[2] The cathedral is widely considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architectureand among the largest and most well-knownchurch buildings in the world. The naturalism of its sculptures and stained glass are in contrast with earlier Romanesque architecture.

The Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel
is a triumphal arch in Paris, located in the Place du Carrousel on the site of the former Tuileries Palace.
