The first time you visit Paris undoubtedly your list of must-see monuments includes the Eiffel Tower. In this week’s episode of Paris History Avec a Hemingway on La Vie Creative Podcast we take you around the Eiffel Tower and Trocadero and share a few other things you might want to check out.
The Esplanade du Trocadero is one of the best spots in the city to catch the sunrise, but look around and not just straight at la grande dame. On the Esplanade des Droits de l’Homme, eight golden statues look down on the many trinket sellers. Added in 1937, each by a different artist they represent youth, the countryside, flowers, and the day on the north side. On the south side, the garden, sprint, fruit, and birds often is found with a Paris pigeon sitting atop her head.
