    More than likely you will have some wait in the square for Notre Dame. The best feature of the square aside from the front of Notre Dame is the impressive and large statue to Charlemagne who pieced to...  more »

    I am not a fan of equestrian statues that leaves me quite indifferent though it certainly can not say that they are ugly and not even this is sure; attraction in the media because you look at it, taking pictures, but it certainly isn't going to look it up to admire it.

    Equestrian statue on the square in front of Notre Dame Cathedral. This statue was King Charlemagne in, embodies the fusion of classical Rome, Christianity, Germanic culture, and treated as emperor Taizu of the Kingdom since the middle ages Christian Europe, also called the "father of Europe". Don't overlook the Cathedral and the Plaza across the street, so is what you want.

    At first glance, it shows very resolute and solemn atmosphere. All lines ans shapes are very strong and delicate.

    Charlemagne(Charles the Great) is considered by many to be the “father of Europe.” He was King of the Franks and Emperor of the Romans. He was sainted in 1166 and the bronze statue of him is located at the entrance of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

    A remarkable statue located in front of cathedral Notre Dame. Very good photos and the pigeons that surround the statue are also an attraction.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
