Rive Gauche was for centuries home to artists, students and intellectuals

Slide24:

Constructed from 1887–89 as the entrance to the 1889 World's Fair, it was initially criticized by some of France's leading artists and intel-lectuals for its design, but it has become a global cultural icon of France and one of the most recogni-sable structures in the world

Slide25:

The Eiffel Tower is the most-visited paid monu-ment in the world; 6.91 million people ascended it in 2015

Slide26:

The tower is 324 metres tall, about the same height as an 81-storey building, and the tallest structure in Paris. Its base is square, measuring 125 metres on each side

Slide27:

The tower has three levels for visitors, with restaurants on the first and second levels. The top level's upper platform is 276 m above the ground – the highest observation deck accessible to the public in the European Union ©- BeNj!

Slide29:

The Pont de Bir-Hakeim is a two-level bridge built in the early 20th century. The upper level is used by metro line 6, while the lower level is for motor vehicles, with a bicycle path in the centre. The bridge provides a superb view of the Eiffel Tower

Slide30:

Formally known as Pont de Passy, the bridge Bir-Hakeim was renamed in 1948 to commemorate the Battle of Bir-Hakeim (1942), where the Free French forces fought against the German Africa Korps during World War II

Slide31:

The bridge, made of steel, is the second to have stood at the site. The Bir-Hakeim bridge was constructed between 1903 and 1905, repla-cing an earlier bridge that had been erected in 1878. An arch bridge, it is 237 metres long and 24.7 metres wide

Slide32:

In the central arch of the bridge are featured four high-relief statues: figures of Science and Labor by Jules-Felix Coutan (upstream), and Electricity and Commerce by Jean Antoine Injalbert (downstream)

Visitors can continue along to the Allée des Cygnes, a walkway over the Seine that can be reached from the middle of the Bir-Hakeim bridge. From here you can admire the Statue of Liberty replica next to the Pont de Grenelle

Commerce by Jean Antoine Injalbert

Slide38:

The bridge has two levels: one for motor vehicles and pedestrians, and a viaduct (the "viaduc de Passy") above, through which passes Line 6 of the Paris Métro

Slide40:

The railway viaduct is supported by metal colonnades, except where it passes over the île aux Cygnes, where it rests on a masonry arch. Many commemorative plates decorate the viaduct bridge, including several dedicated to soldiers fallen in Belgium during the Second World War

Slide42:

The road level of the bridge extends out in a belvedere where it passes over the île aux Cygnes which covers the eastern end of the island. Here stands a statue named La France renaissante
