Being young in Europe has its perks. Amongst them: Free visits to national monuments. I took advantage and climbed the Arc de Triomphe on a sunny fall day for some skyline photos. One of my favorites is actually of La Défense — the “Wall Street” of Paris and often forgotten. There’s not much to do there but the silhouette is interesting and it’s worth one visit. I hope you enjoy!
