Question on this sentence, " J'ai visité Paris. "

Is this an exception case that we omit the "à", do you have other similar example? 

Thank you.

This question relates to:
French lesson "Visiter vs rendre visite à = To visit a place vs a person"

Hi Carine,

There is no need for the 'à' here as the verb is simply: 

to visit + town

e.g. J'ai visité Paris, Rome et Berlin.

but if you said:

 I went to ...

it would be - Je suis allée à Paris, à Rome et à Berlin.

Hope this helps!
