By running place de la Concorde with Veena

Veena - Place de la Concorde
7:58 AM - Veena, of Brisbane (Australia), did her first visit of Paris, doing a running tour. 
We thus realized an attractive loop passing by the most beautiful places of the heart of the capital: the garden of the Luxembourg where we greeted Geneviève, the protector of Paris (her statue decorates the park), the Pantheon, the island of La Cité, the Louvre, the Palais Royal, the place de la Concorde and then the banks of the Seine...

In La Concorde, we met eight great ladies who represent the main cities of France. 

City of Nantes

These statues (1838) are arranged on the place according to their situation on the map of France. By taking place in front of the statues of Marseille and Lyon and by prolonging our look, we would indeed reach the corresponding cities (it is not really the case for the other statues). The view of La Concorde below shows the lines which join the statues and their corresponding cities.
