Come see the small version of the Statue of Liberty, and while you are here, sit in the park and enjoy the river. Very tranquil. Unique.

It is a long strip, where you walk from Passy bridge to Beaugrenelle, or vice-versa. Benches all along under trees to rest or eat while seeing Paris. Very nice place. Plus you see the Statue of Liberty (originally a gift from France, to the U.S.).

A small narrow man-made island on the river Seine, it owes its fame to a replica of the Statue of Liberty located on it. It is also close to the Eiffel Tower and can be seen from it.
