Top 10 Best Geometric Sites

Impeccable geometry is something that all the cities have in common. But usually it becomes almost invisible, when it blends to an overall surroundings. However, sometimes geometric shapes manifest in all their glory, when designers and architects decide to make their creations as obvious as possible. From black and white tiles in Livorno, spiral stairs in Vatican to the vast cityscape in Dubai – see the list of beautiful urban architecture.

10. Pont de la Tournelle, Paris, France

The bridge itself is said to lack symmetry. It was a deliberate decision, so that it would blend with the shapeless surroundings. The pedestrian underpass under a Parisian bridge, however, doesn’t lack symmetry at all. In fact it looks incredible due to a reflection in the water.

Why to go there?

A stroll around Paris and river Seine is a must.

When to go there?

Anytime – Paris is beautiful all year round.
