My favourite moments from my time studying in Paris this Summer- many more to come! In a city offering as much as Paris, how could you stay stagnant?
Looking up at La Grande Arche
Built directly in line with its famous counterpart, Le Arc de Triomphe, La Grande Arche in La Defense, the Parisian business district is a sight to be seen. I still can't get my head around how enormous it is! There are 2 flights of stairs leading up to it, and the people sitting on the stairs to eat lunch ( a popular lunchtime spot) look like ants in comparison. Also, La Grande Arche isn't empty - as you can see the interior faces are made up of windows - it is full of offices. It's a great area to see modern Paris and is surrounded by at least 3 large shopping centres that I'm aware of. If you walk around the area, it actually is quite pretty also, different from the typical "old Paris"
