Place De La Bastille, Paris Reviews - Write a Review
Place de la Bastille is a famous place downtown Paris. It's very easy to get there by foot or public transport. Some of the side streets are quite interesting and lively.
Birthplace of the revolution but undergoing repair so, meh. Also while we're here there was a big "manefestation" about labor reforms. Riot police compris. Should be a cool place but...
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.
You don't have to run as fast as you can to fit that visit in your programm. Yeah it's very beautiful but not one of the must must visit
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.
