5/20/2008 冒險第十天: 巴黎–艾菲爾鐵塔, 凱旋門, 香榭麗舍大道 (Adventure 10th day: Paris–Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Elysees)

 
I stayed in Avranches, a city about 13 km away from Mountain Saint Michel, the last night. Today I’d go to Rennes to return the rented car and take TGV train to Paris.  
 
要在巴黎市區常常搭地鐵可以買這種票 "Carnet", 可以一次買十張10.95歐元~ 在地鐵站就有機器可以買, 要用信用卡或投錢幣, 機器操縱有英文.
 
Eiffel Tower (艾菲爾鐵塔): Gustave Eiffel started to build it in 1887 and completed it in 1889. It stands 324 meters, making it the tallest building in the world until 1993. 它實在太高了, 我沒辦法全部照進去哩.
 
 
It’s divided into several layers and different layers require tickets in different prices. (我沒上去, 因為我看到排隊排了將近一公里)
 
There were armed forces around the tower…
 
The bridge in front of Eiffel Tower crossing Seine river. (Who can tell me what the bridge’s name is? I forgot…)–>Information from my good friend, Ling: the bridge is called Pont d’Iena; the building on another side is Palace de Chaillot. If you go to another side of the bridge, you’ll be able to take a nice photo of complete Eiffel Tower. (Dumb me…. I didn’t even think of it…
 
A contemporary skyscraper can be seen from where Eiffel Tower stands: (我聽說巴黎人超痛恨這棟大樓, 覺得它不僅破壞巴黎優雅的市容, 還醜到爆…)
 
Arc de Triomphe (凱旋門): It was commissioned by Napoleon in 1806, standing on Place de I’Etoile (Star Square) where many roads meet.  
 
 
 
 
Arc de Triomphe stands on the center of many roads, including the west end of the most famous street in Paris–Champs-Elysees. This is Avenue des Champs-Elysees; it is quite crowded and full of name-branded boutiques.
 
 
A Peugeot car shop on Champs-Elysees:
 
It was exhibiting the cars that would compete in Marathon car-racing in Le Mans.
 
 
A Guerlain boutique. It’s probably one of the most elegant boutiques I’ve ever seen. Inside, it exhibited Guerlain’s perfume and cosmetics from very early times, making it more like a museum.
 
A Louise Vuitton boutique, but I didn’t go in.
 
 
"Paul" is a renowned bakery store in France. I love macarons–they are best with a cup of unsweetened tea or black coffee.  
 
Yum~~~
 
Yum yum~~
 
巨大macaron~ 直徑有11cm  (其實我到法國才知道臺灣平常賣的size在那邊叫 mini macaron, 法國macaron一般size約8cm)
 
 
我沒看到艾菲爾鐵塔點燈, 因為要等到10pm天完全暗以後… 累屬了, 我今天走得腿快斷了…..

    The bridge that links Eiffel Tower and the Palace de Chaillot is called Pont d\’Iéna.
     
    You know if u go to the other side of that bridge… which means if u r standing in front of the Palace of Chaillot, you can capture the Eiffel Tower in full~
