While this is not an official memorial to Princess Diana, the flame is located over the bridge where the horrible crash happened. Wonderful to see people still bringing flowers and pictures all these years later. A warm tribute to a wonderful icon.

This is the Princess Diana memorial near the spot that she was seriously injured when the paparazzi hounded her whilst in Paris. It’s a touching tribute to her and is a memorial monument that will always be loved by fans of Princess Diana.

On our evening tour of Paris, we passed the Liberty Flame on the way to the Eiffel Tower. It's dramatic at night given that it is golden and the night lighting really makes it glow. The Liberty Flame really stands out in the evening darkness.

This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
