Europe Trip- Paris | Arc de Triomphe, La Grand Roue de Paris (Paris Ferries Wheel), Luxor Obelisk

19th November 2014

It came to the end of our trip in Paris. Before the excursion to the airport, the driver was kind enough to let us drop by some tourist attractions to bring back some memorable photos back.

Arc de Triomphe is another famous and historical monument in Paris, honouring those who fought and died for France during French Revolutionary and the Napoleonic Wars. The names of the French victories and generals had inscribed on both inner and outer surfaces of Arc de Triomphe. With the height of 164- feet tall, it towers over the 50 feet tall Arch of Titus in Rome that inspired the design for the Parisian landmark.

Notably to mention that the most famous shopping street, Avenue Champs-Élysées is just in front of it. Arc de Triomphe is located around a colossal roundabout, we did not have time to go across the road to spend some time over there. From most other websites, you could actually climb up Arc de Triomphe to view Paris scenery. 

The Ferris Wheel Place de la Concorde (La Grande Roue de Paris) was nearby Arc de Triomphe.Hence, we had dropped by the final tourist attraction which had both La Grand Roue de Paris and Luxor Obelisk. La Grand Roue de Paris is one of the places you could see the nice city, beautiful landmarks in Paris. La Grand Roue de Paris is a 60-metre (200 ft) tall. It might not be big and glamour as London’s eye, yet the skyscrapers of Paris especially at night could blow your mind off. 

Another landmark that is nearby La Grand Roue de Paris is the Luxor Obelisk is a 23 metre high Egyptian obelisk standing at the center of the Place de la Concorde in Paris, France. Luxor Obelish has been erected in Place de la Concorde as a symbol of peace, replacing the former statue of Louis XV since year 1836.
