To close a working stay in Paris, a Running tour!

Running Place Vendôme
9h43 - In this month of April, an important international company had an executive management meeting a few days in Paris. At the end of the working stay, a day of relaxation was dedicated to the visit of the capital. A sports tour of Paris was organized: there is nothing like running to fully relax. We, Vincent, Frédéric and Jean-Charles, accompanied the group of runners for a tour following the right and the left banks of the Seine, passing by the place Vendôme, the Tuileries, the Champs Elysées, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and the Opera Garnier.
Thanks to them!

The Eiffel tower: Did you know it? From the beginning of the Eiffel Tower, five hydraulic elevators transported the visitors. In this time, for such a height and of such weights, it was a real technical exploit. For a long time, these elevators were driven by a pilot who was outside of the cabin. He bore the cold or the heat according to the seasons... A life-size reproduction of this pilot is on one of the elevators. Try to see him through the window of the elevator:
Elevator pilot!
