  • With its colorful exterior and modern presence, the Centre Pompidou is home to the National Museum of Modern Art and also hosts various temporary exhibitions about a single artist, such as Dali. Georges Pompidou was President of France 🇫🇷 from 1969 to 1974 and wished to give French art a new place on the international stage and open it to the masses. It is really worth a visit, if you enjoy contemporary art 🤓 A fun fact about the Pompidou Centre: Unlike any other building in Paris, all the plumbing, electrics, air circulation, wires and pipes – and even the escalators – are on the outside of the building giving the museum its unique appearance #followmytrolley

  • Many are the marvels of architecture in Paris 🇫🇷 For me, the Grande Arche de la Défence is special, as it was designed by Danish architect Johann Otto von Spreckelsen (I know - not a very Danish name) and engineer Erik Reitzel 🇩🇰 The 110mx110mx110x cube was officially opened in 1989, and is a landmark in the very modern La Defence area of Paris. It is also on a parallel line with the Arche de Triomphe in the centre of Paris. You can visit the top of the cube for a marvelous view of La Defence and old Paris in the distance #followmytrolley

  • In Paris 🇫🇷 it has become tradition - mainly among tourists - to write the names of the loving couple ❤️ on a padlock 🔒 attach it to the side of the Pont des Arts bridge, and throw the key 🔑 in the Seine. This curious tradition, a gesture of love, has given many a headache to city authorities. The weight of over a million padlocks has caused panels to collapse, and several panels are now replaced with decorated glass. Do you know of any other love bridges around the world? #followmytrolley

  • Aaah Paris 🇫🇷 Where else will you find this view, which always brings me fond memories - Parisien houses along the Seine canal in the middle of Paris 🤓 Did you know that the Seine River flows for 13 kilometers through Paris? What is your fondest memory of Paris? #followmytrolley

  • The Louvre pyramid is the main entrance to the Louvre museum in Paris 🇫🇷 Underground, a second pyramid was revealed in 1993, the Pyramide Inversée or Inverted Pyramid. In the movie 🎥 "Da Vinci Code" by Dan Brown, the remains of Mary Magdalene are hidden inside a small stone pyramid on the floor beneath the inverted glass pyramid. This is in fact not true. A nice story, though 🤓 #followmytrolley

  • Musee du Louvre. The world's largest art museum, located in Paris 🇫🇷 Nearly 40,000 objects are on display here, including the Mona Lisa 🎨 Did you know that it would take you 100 full days to spend just 30 seconds in front of every piece of art at the Louvre? 🤓 #followmytrolley

  • From the top of the Eiffel Tower🗼 🇫🇷 a view over the Trocadero Gardens. The rounded buildings are museums. On the left "Museum of Man" 👨 and the "National Navy Museum" ⚓️ On the right is the "Museum of Architecture" 📐 A curious fact about Trocadero 🤓 A secret group named “Les UX” created a complete bar and restaurant underneath the Trocadéro #followmytrolley

  • A curious thing about Paris 🇫🇷 is how the the triumphal way was planned 🖊 You can draw an almost straight line from the Louvre museum through the Arc de Triomphe all the way to la Defence and the Grande Arche (which incidentially was designed by a Danish architect 🇩🇰 ). The stunning Arc de Triomphe stands on Place Charles de Gaulle-Etoile ⭐️ at the end of the Champs-Elysees. Under the arch is the tomb of the unknown soldier from World War I. An eternal flame 🔥 reminds us of lives lost on both sides of the war, and bodies never identified 🤓 A fun fact about the Arc de Triomphe: Aviator Charles Godefroy flew his Nieuport fighter 🛩 through the arch at the 1919 Paris Victory Parade to mark the end of World War I #followmytrolley

  • Paris is called city of lights 💡 for a good reason. Once the sun sets 🌇 buildings and monuments are illuminated. On the Eiffel Tower, you can even see a light show. I shot this photo 📸 from a canal boat 🚤 while touring the Seine at night. The colour of the Eiffel Tower makes it look like gold once illuminated. Magnifique. 🤓 A fun fact: 60 tonne of paint is used to paint the tower, which happens every seven years #followmytrolley
