The most famous arch of all! The Arc de Triomphe! About twelve different streets intersect here into a circle around the arch, creating total chaos. Fortunately, there is a pedestrian tunnel going under the street.

The Eiffel Tower at night. In the first photo, you can see the spinning light emanating from the top of the tower. In the bottom center photo, the blurry spots are raindrops. I rushed back to the tower to get a daytime shot of it.

paris_flame.jpg (114,223 bytes) This flame is a copy of the one from the Statue of Liberty and a gift from America to France. It is unfortunately located just outside the tunnel where Princess Diana was fatally wounded, so many tourists think that it is dedicated to her. That's why you see flowers and various people hanging around it. The Eiffel Tower can be seen in the distance.

This is just outside Paris at Vimy Ridge. This monument was constructed by the Canadians to honor those lost during World War I. A very peaceful scene with lots of sheep grazing.
