I did a flash running tour of Paris during the jog to the tower, stopping to photo what happened to catch my eye. I did get turned around briefly upon reaching the Place de la Bastille July monument, but fortunately I looked up, into the sky, and saw two contrails merging to form the shape of a bow and arrow, so naturally I took it as a sign from the universe and followed its direction to the river Seine. Most people just read street signs. Me: giant bow and arrow in the sky. Growing weary of constantly experiencing the watchful eye of creation at a rate that could turn Dawkins to a swami, I make tracks to the tower.
Beautiful historic place: this is where the 1789 French revolution started, a revolution that shook the entire world! Beside the column in the middle, you have plenty of restaurants of all types and at all prices all around and even a beautiful Opera House, Nike shop, and more.
Surrounded by cafés, you can enjoy "Le Génie de la Liberté" on top of the "Colonne de Juillet", commemorating "Les trois Glorieuses". The Opera Bastille is just there and if you happen to be there on an evening of "Générale", the last repetition before the opening of the show, you can usually get in for free and enjoy that performance. You can stroll or have a drink at the marina too, at the canal St-Martin. On Sunday is where the big food market takes place, but you can also enjoy some art market and food during the week, it's just much smaller. The prison no longer exists, but in the metro, on line 5, it shows your where the wall used to be.
Interesting place, where many young people converge, is full of interesting places, lots of party, good people and good food.
A lot of restaurants in the corner, beautiful streets and a lot of youngsters! Less touristic than the Paris Center.
