Paris, in my point of view, pleases the eye every hour of every day of every season of the year. Here is a view of the unmistakable Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris seen shimmering through the bare trees of winter on the Île de la Cité.
I find that no matter how many times I walk by the Notre-Dame, I always stop and look and remark to myself what a beautiful cathedral stands dominantly along the Seine.
Wandering around the Notre-Dame to look for different views is a fun way to spend a part of a day. Winter provides many crystal-clear days with blazing sunshine and I highly recommend a visit to the City of Light during the winter months.
