One of the things we like to find in Paris is where movies have been shot on location, so we can say, “We’ve been there”. This walk will take us to the front door of the apartment used in the movie Last Tango in Paris and to the spot on the bridge in the movie National Treasure: Book of Secrets where they fly a remote helicopter to see what is written on the Statue of Liberty at the end of the Allee des Cyges Island, actually the correct term is Replique de la Statue de la Liberte. Fun stuff huh? Oh yeah, there are great views of the Eiffel Tower from here too!

Leaving the Trocadero area looking back up the side of it is a robust group at the Merry-Go-Round!!

The Pont de Bir-Hakeim is the only bridge in Paris that carries both cars and Metro! The statue is La France Renaissante an equestrian statue!
