France gave the United States the famous Statue of Liberty 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. A visit to Statue of Liberty represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Paris day trip planning site to plot your vacation.

  • When I first saw her I was incredulous. After having documented, I realized that this is the true the first statue of liberty. It was built by Alexandre Gustave Eiffel as proof for the most famous statue located in Ellis Island USA.

  • A copy of the big, bad sister and without charm. Can largely be avoided. Except for a kitschy picture

  • This statue is very nice but didn't go only if you're in the neighborhood, otherwise it's not really worth the detour. I really understand what do these sports facilities at this place. Not really consistent.

  • Nice place for a walk and beautiful statue of liberty...
  • This site has huge potential! Needs the graffiti and trash cleaned up.
  • Statue is facing towards the river. Beautiful place with physical exercises' tools. But not good fir photos. Photos of the statue can be taken from river cruise.
  • Very symbolic. Democracy and freedom across nations and all that. Makes you think. Located at the end of a beautiful walk.
  • The one-quarter scale Statue of Liberty replica located on Île des Cygnes, a tiny island on the Seine on the western side of the Pont de Grenelle(about a 20 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower). You can take a stroll along the river to go check the Statue from close up. Ile aux Cygnes, it’s a nice tree-lined island with a large walking/running path and only accessible by foot. There are couple of benches, public work-out area and a small climbing wall. It is free and take Line 6 on Metro to Bir-Hakeim.

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.
