Paris is one of the major financial centers of Europe and the third highest GDP in the world. Its history goes back to 52 BC when it was conquered by the Romans and was made a garrison camp. By the 12th century, however, it was a political, cultural and religious capital of France. The Palais de la Cite, which continues to stand to this day was built in the 12th century on the Ile de la Cite island. It is home to hundreds of attractions and monuments, many of them built during the medieval and renaissance periods. A number of them are located close to the Seine and can be seen during the river cruise. These include the Notre Dame de Paris, the Les Invalides, Conciergerie, the Palais de Chaillot, and Louvre Museum. A cruise is a perfect way to experience the beauty of Paris, especially at night when all of these monuments are lit up, making for one of the most beautiful riverside views in the world.
