    As most vestiges of the Bastille have been destroyed and removed, I was still eager to visit the Place de la Bastille to see where the Revolution began. Unfortunately, I was met with traffic gridlock ...  more »

    Pretty awesome column height of 80 meters. Monument dedicated to memorable days of the revolution of 1830 years. When within three days was removed from power, King Charles X and began a constitutional monarchy. In the crypt at the foot of the monument is buried a symbolic ashes 504 victims of the revolution. Ground columns are two round pedestal from red and white marble. The column is crowned by a gilded statue of the genius of liberty whose torch in one hand and in the other, broken chains of slavery.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
