Plane views: Paris

I’ve flown over Paris dozens of times but on my recent flight to Barcelona, the weather was clear and Paris shimmered in the morning sun. The plane was at a cruising altitude of 30,000+ feet but the aerial view of Paris was spectacular. I could easily spot the most iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the Arc du Triomphe, the Champs Élysée and the Louvre. I didn’t have to think twice… I pulled out my iPhone and started snapping away! 🙂

I zoomed in a bit for a closer look and I could clearly see the Seine river and the Île de la Cité, the island in the river which is home to the Notre Dame Cathedral. The broad Champs Élysée boulevard could also easily be seen, as well as the Arc du Triomphe. Just west of the boulevard, I spotted the Eiffel Tower. Can you spot these iconic landmarks in the photo below?

    Paris, for sure the most beautiful city of the world. Whatever the architecture, the culture, the monuments, museums, shopping malls… Impossible to find better :))
