Paris from above

After my lunch I went out onto the second floor of the Eiffel Tower which affords spectacular views of the city:-
Champs de Mars 
Ecole Militaire

Le Dome Church at Les Invalides 
Sacre Coeur - Butte Montmartre

The River Seine

In the foreground Pont Alexandre III and behind 

La Place de la Concorde/Hotel Crillon/
Tuilleries Gardens and Rue de Rivoli (to the right)


Not sure where this is!

L'Arc de Triomphe

The Grand Palais exhibition hall, the Madeleine
Church and the circular dome of the 
Opera Garnier can be seen in the distance 
towards the top right corner of the picture.

The Trocadero

La Defense

La Defense close up -testing my zoom!

And the River Seine again.
