During each travel experience, Ilya Movshovich was fascinated by many different attractions as well as cultural and historical sites. Some of his favorite things to see and do at his favorite travel destinations include:
France: The Eiffel Tower & The Tuileries Gardens, Paris
In the global cultural icon of France, the Eiffel Tower stands 324 meters tall and provides stunning views of Paris from the top deck. The Tuileries Gardens covers 63 acres in the centre of Paris and is perfect for sipping coffee at one of the many cafes and admiring the seemingly endless modern art installations.
