An arch in the middle of a building site, can't get close enough to see this properly. No signage, even temporary. Only came across this by accident, glad we didn't make a special trip but it was nice to see.

An impressive archway but in the middle of severe redevelopment and traffic congestion. A little way uphill from the old port. Clearly marked on the tourist map near Charles Nedelec street.

Plus: The Arc, the view from the top, the underground metro/subway, the traffic at the round-about... Your senses will be overloaded with appreciation and impression for the French (once) superior. Minus: Watch out for taxis and motorbikes when you cross the street. They are very...More
