A spectacular 35-minute fireworks display will take place at the Eiffel Tower at 11:00 p.m. on July 14 to celebrate France's Fête Nationale. This year, the theme of the pyrotechnic event is "Paris Welcomes the World."

Our meal at Sens Uniques was, hands down, one of the best that we have ever experienced at a mid-priced restaurant. Follow this link and sign in to read our review: http://www.parisinsights.com/restaurants.php.

In the center of Paris stands the Théâtre du Châtelet, a grand neo-Renaissance theater, on whose roof a pair of charming lead cherubs support a lightening rod. The little girl on the left, swathed in a banner, wraps her arms around it delicately, while her young partner does his best to hold it in place. A dramatic mask at the base of the rod recalls the thespian arts.
Théâtre du Châtelet, 2 rue Edouard Colonne, 1st arrondissement (Métro: Châtelet)
