Not a lot of people know that Paris has her own Statue of Liberty if not statues! Another one can be found in Jardin du Luxembourg.

Also, on L’île aux Cygnes, you can exercise in this free outdoor fitness center!

A life-size copy of the torch of the Statue of Liberty can be seen above the entrance to the Pont de l’Alma tunnel in which Princess Diana died. The torch became an unofficial memorial to the Princess where you can always see flowers, pictures of her and letters, just like this one:
