princess-diana-flame-of-liberty-place-alma-paris-2The Flame of Liberty (Flamme de la Liberté) in Paris is a full-sized, gold-leaf-covered replica of the new flame at the upper end of the torch carried in the hand of the Statue of Liberty at the entrance to the harbor of New York City since 1886. The monument, which measures approximately 3.5 metres in height, is a sculpture of a flame, executed in gilded copper, supported by a pedestal of gray-and-black marble. It is located near the northern end of the Pont de l’Alma, on the Place de l’Alma, in the8th arrondissement of Paris.

The flame became an unofficial memorial for Diana, Princess of Wales after her 1997 death in the tunnel beneath the Pont de l’Alma (see death of Diana, Princess of Wales) The flame became an attraction for tourists and followers of Diana, who fly-posted the base with commemorative material.

The Army Museum

I’m a true fan of Paris and the army, so I was pretty shocked to know about the Army Museum in Paris. It’s a place that tours don’t give that much of an importance, but (I believe) it’s one of the most important places in Paris. Continue reading “The Army Museum”

Le Ciel de Paris

At the top of the Tour Montparnasse there’s an observatory. Right under this observatory there’s the most beautiful restaurant I’ve seen, called Le Ciel de Paris (The Sky of Paris, in english). There you have the unique view of the city that only the Tour Montparnasse can give with an amazing food and service.

Before we went there, I looked at TripAdvisor and people said it was expensive and the food was not as good as the price was high, but that the view made going there worth it. So, after seeing some photos, I decided to go. I made a reservation through the restaurant’s website and asked for a table with view to the Tour.

When we got there, we noticed the restaurant’s exclusive elevator was also part of the experience. It had this beautiful decoration that combined with the restaurant’s decoration and was really fast.

When we got inside, it was a huge surprise that they had actually reserved for us a table with view to the Tour (I thought they wouldn’t) and the most amazing view to all Paris. We could see, also, the Musée d’Armée, the Arc de Triomphe, the Ferris Wheel, etc.

I was, also, surprised by the food, because I found it delicious and quite the oposite of what I was expecting. A good amount of food, for a not-so-bad price. The waiter gave us the best recommendations and we loved every single dish.

Tips for those who want to go there

  1. Make reservations a while before going. The restaurant is full almost every day and you may lose the best time and table if you book too close.
  2. The sunset is just amazing from up there. Try to book a time close to it.
  3. Don’t choose the Menu Balcon, it’s too far from the window and people are always passing by.

I hope I have helped you. If you have any questions or suggestions, please tell me in the comments.
