One last view from la Défense


Yesterday I showed the Grande Arche and told you about the "Axe historique". Here is the view from the Grande Arche of this "Axe Historique". The line in the center leads to the Arc of Triumph that you can see in the very far background. I hope you liked this week of La Défense. See you tomorrow in "old" Paris.

This almost looks like an artist's drawing... stunning! I confess that I have not been there but will definitely make it on my next trip... bon weekend, mon ami

Bises,

I can see the Arc of Triumph at a distance on the big road. Amazing photo. It's inviting me. Someday I'd like to visit Paris, again, after about one decade.

I have really enjoyed this little tour. This is an area I've been wanting to visit so I thank you for this opportunity.

Great tour of La Défense! Thank you being our eyes in Paris!

I'm sure that the contrast between the photos of business disctrict and the old Paris would be inspiring...:)

I love this photo. Was "La Défense" as a whole planned or did they just keep on adding, hoping it would come together well?

I've always looked over toward La Defense...thinking someday I would venture there. Thank you for taking me!
