Arc de Triomphe as seen from the Eiffel Tower, France

One of the most alluring aspects of Paris is that the city has maintained height restrictions on its buildings. Consequently, though surrounded by one of the most busy and crowded parts of the city, the Arc de Triomphe stands proudly above its neighbors, a monument that has not been drowned in a sea of skyscrapers. From the Eiffel Tower, the city and suburbs expand in all directions, the views extending for miles. The joy is finding a particularly beautiful needle in this enormous haystack.
