France gave the United States the famous Statue de la Liberte in 1886. It's a symbol of the friendship between the two nations that developed during the American Revolution. Its sculptor, Auguste Bartholdi, made smaller, exact replicas of the statue. The oldest one, used as a model for the American monument, sits in Jardin du Luxembourg. The artist offered it to the Luxembourg museum in 1900, and the museum placed it in the park in 1906. Come here to study the statue without the aid of a helicopter or binoculars.

  • One of the most famous images in the world, the Statue of Liberty, whose fame the City of New York projected, although not an American work. This statue is of French construction, inaugurated in 1889, and the one we find here, on the Île aux Cygnes, near the Eiffel Tower, is a sample (only 11.5 mts. High) of what became world famous in NY (with 46.5 mts.) In the middle of the Grenelle bridge there is access to the base of this statue and that's where I went along this famous monument in Paris.

  • We visited this statue through the Bir Hakeim Bridge and walked over the Ile aux Cygnes. The Bir Hakeim Bridge (named after a battle of the French against Rommel in Algeria) is a Metro bridge and is located in the houses on one side of the Seine and continues its way on an aboveground viaduct towards Montparnasse. It is a place where newly married couples make a photoshoot. From this bridge you hit the stairs on the Ile aux Cygnes. This artificially narrow (10 meter) shaped island is a 800 meters long. Several tree species are planned on a row along the central road (each with a sign with explanations). At the end of the island is the Statue of Liberty of Bartoldi. A nice know-you-that-you: the Parisians had initially placed the statue with its head towards Eiffel Tower. However, this did not wish Bartoldi. He wanted the Statue of Liberty to look at his image in NY. And so history. From this island you can also see the circular building of Radiofrance. It is a quiet place, away from the Parisian hustle and bustle.

  • It’s a replica of Statue of Liberty and smaller than the original one. But when you are in Paris and if your schedule permits, you can go there and have a look. It’s at a walking distance of around 1.5 km from the city center. Better go during daylight.
  • Very cool that Paris has a own mini Statue of Liberty. Looks great with nice surroundings. This is also a great movie spot as "Frantic" was filmed here with Harrison Ford.
