Musée With a View


One of my favorite museums in Paris is La Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimone.  I think it's one of Paris' best kept secrets and the views of la Tour Eiffel are showstoppers.

1 Place du Trocadéro
75116 Paris
Métro: Trocadéro ( lines 6 and 9)

A view to an icon!

The view offers a great juxtaposition of a new building peaking in the background of a magnificent beauty.
I like this shot.

I coincidentally did a post on La Tour Eiffel today! And Genie also...I can't wait to go to this museum next time, & have gotten myself excited about going back to the Eiffel! Merci, mon amie, & I'm still thinking about those prints...

That is some view, V! (Though I would have had to frame it so that the hideous, awful, scene-spoiling, affreuse, dégeulasse Tour Montparnasse was hidden by the window frame. Just sayin'.))

This is a new one to me. I like the tower shown in a modern window with its bold straight lines.

I like this scene :)

Wow, it does have an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower. A great recommendation, dear V.

Virginia said...

Alexa, I agree about Tour Montparnasse, and blight on the horizon!
