  • Jean - Notice how the “neighborhoods” are close together and the city “blocks” are not square, but more like an “escargot”, often very triangular. Originally there was a law that said no building could be build more than 5 or 6 stories high. In the late 20 th century, tall buildings were allowed but they are along the outskirts of the city. The monuments stand out among the buildings and provide a great view of the entire city.
  • What's an arrondissement? - jean An arrondissement is a section of the city of Paris. Paris is divided into 20 arrondissements. Starting in the center of the city with the first arrondissement, the numbers increase from the center of town as they spiral out like the shell of a snail.
  • Melissa - Paris was founded about 250 BC by a small Celtic tribe called the Parisii the tiny island you see above. The small island (île de la cité) became an important center during Roman occupation. Notre Dame and the Palais de Justice are located there. Important area during French revolution and WWII.
  • Melissa - Tradition has it that Notre-Dame’s first stone was laid in 1163 in the presence of Pope Alexander III. The new building fell under the new art movement known as the gothic style (or the ogival style). This style had already been seen on other worksites: in 1140 with the dedication of the Abbey of Saint-Denis built by Abbé Suger ;
  • Melissa -The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris , commonly known as Sacré-Cœur Basilica ( French : Basilique du Sacré-Cœur , pronounced [sakʁe kœʁ] ), is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica , dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in Paris , France . A popular landmark, the basilica is located at the summit of the butte Montmartre , the highest point in the city. Sacré-Cœur is a double monument, political and cultural, both a national penance for the brutal recapturing of the city during the socialist Paris Commune of 1871 crowning its most rebellious neighborhood, and an embodiment of conservative moral order, publicly dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus , which was an increasingly popular vision of a loving and sympathetic Christ. [1]

  • Melissa - o the glory of the Grande Armée In 1806, just after the Battle of Austerlitz*, Napoleon I declared to his soldiers, “you will march homethrough arches of victory”. The monument was to dominate Paris and indulge the Emperor's liking for Ancient Rome. It is located on the Place de l’Étoile.
  • Jean – eternal flame, July 14 th ,
  • Jean - L’ Arc de Triomphe is located in the Place De Gaulle. It was originally called La Place de l’Étoile because the streets branch out like a star. Later renamed after Charles De Gaulle.
  • Jean and shopping
  • Jean – flies...mouches...lights...
  • Jean Fun & Interesting Facts About Eiffel Tower Being a metal structure, protective paint is very important for this Parisian landmark. It is painted every 7 years with 60,000 liters (15,850 US gallons) of paint. * Eiffel Tower is the tallest building in Paris. * The height of Eiffel Tower, including its 24 m (79 ft) antenna, is 324 m. * The height of Eiffel Tower is equivalent to 81 levels in a conventional building. * The metal structure of the Eiffel Tower weighs 7,300 tonnes, while the entire structure, including non-metal parts, weighs around 10,100 tonnes. * One can visit the different floors of the monument via elevators. * Strong winds can sway Eiffel Tower slightly. During the storm of 1999, it moved approximately 13 centimeters from its initial position. * * Eiffel Tower is home to dozens of antennas, of all sorts, including a television mast that is 324 meters high. * Eiffel Tower is painted every 7 years. It gets covered in 3 shades of brown, with the darkest one at the bottom. * Approximately 60 tons of paint and a time period of 15 to 18 months is required to paint the Eiffel Tower. * On a clear day, one can see up to 42 miles away, from the top of Eiffel Tower. * The Eiffel Tower is open 365 days a year. * Eiffel Tower has two restaurants, on the first and second platforms, named Altitude and Jules Verne. * Eiffel Tower was initially intended to be dismantled and sold as scrap 20 years after its construction, but this never happened.
  • Jean La Grande Arche was inaugurated in July 1989, with grand military parades that marked the bicentennial of the French revolution . The Arche is placed so that it forms a secondary axe (axis) with the two highest buildings in Paris , the Tour Eiffel and the Tour Montparnasse . Views of Paris are to be had from the lifts taking visitors to the roof.

  • Melissa - The Palais du Louvre, 35.000 works of art Houses one of the most stunning collections of artworks in the world, is known first and foremost as a museum. Yet for almost seven hundred years the buildings constituted one of the principal residences of the kings and emperors of France. The Louvre, one of the world's finest art museums is located in Paris , France along the Seine River. It houses many significant works of art including the "Victory of Samothrace" and Leonardo da Vinci's "Mona Lisa." Initially it was a royal fortress and many years later turned into a palace for Philip II , King of France. The halls of the building were so big that the king and his son use to ride on horseback, galloping in and out of its many hallways.

  • Melissa - Opera House and masterpiece The Palais Garnier is the thirteenth theatre to house the Paris Opera since it was founded by Louis XIV in 1669. It was built on the orders of Napoleon III as part of the great Parisian reconstruction project carried out by Baron Haussmann. The project for an opera house was put out to competition and was won by Charles Garnier, an unknown 35-year-old architect. Building work, which lasted fifteen years, from 1860 to 1875, was interrupted by numerous incidents, including the 1870 war, the fall of the Empire and the Commune. The Palais Garnier was inaugurated on 5 January 1875.
  • Jean - President Georges Pompidou who wanted to create an original cultural institution in the heart of Paris completely focused on modern and contemporary creation, where the visual arts would rub shoulders with theatre, music, cinema, literature and the spoken word. first opened its doors to the public in 1977 one of the most visited attractions in France. Some 6 million people pass through the Centre Pompidou's doors each year, a total of over 190 million visitors in its 30 years of existence.

  • Jean - The Place de la Bastille is a square in Paris, where the Bastille prison stood until the ' Storming of the Bastille ' and its subsequent physical destruction between 14 July 1789 and 14 July 1790 during the French Revolution ; no vestige of it remains. The July Column ( Colonne de Juillet ) which commemorates the events of the July Revolution (1830) stands at the center of the square. Other notable features include the Bastille Opera , the Bastille subway station and a section of the Canal Saint Martin . Prior to 1984, the former Bastille railway station stood where the opera house now stands. The square is often home to concerts and similar events. The north-eastern area of Bastille is busy at night due to many cafés, bars, night clubs, and concert halls. As a consequence of its historical significance, the square is often used for political demonstrations, including the massive anti-CPE demonstration of 28 March 2006 .
  • Jean - The Latin Quarter of Paris situated on the left bank of the River Seine , around the Sorbonne . Known for its student life, lively atmosphere and bistros , the Latin Quarter is the home to a number of higher education establishments besides the university itself, such as the École Normale Supérieure , the École des Mines de Paris (a ParisTech institute), the Schola Cantorum , and the Jussieu university campus . La Sorbonne The area gets its name from the Latin language , which was once widely spoken in and around the University since Latin was the international language of learning in the Middle Ages .
