Montparnasse Tower, 210 meters high, is right in the center of Paris. It can't be more central than that, unless you build a tower on the Notre Dame square.





The Front de Seine towers, one of the largest and tallest residential complex in Europe, are located just next to the Eiffel Tower in Central Paris.

The Jussieu Tower is located within walking distance of Notre Dame and the Panthéon, in the Medieval heart of the city.





The Chinatown towers are also in Central Paris (here in the background, with the Paris City Hall and Pompidou Centre in the middleground).



No, the truth is, tourists come to Paris with expectations of Amélie and Moulin Rouge, a gone-by cliché Paris unchanged since 1900, and they are completely blind to the real Paris they have in front of their eyes. I have met countless numbers of foreigners who visited Paris and didn't remember having seen the towers that were glaringly standing in front of them. The human mind works in a strange way, there are things that we are completely blind to even if they are just in front of us, probably because they were not part of our expectations.

Arguments please
I think it is because this area is relatively new, so it yet has to build up it's reputation. Furthermore, Paris is especially known as a historic city, because it is one. In the outskirts like La Defense, however, skyscrapers rise and give the city a modern face

I was disagree with the second part of your statement.
(That's also why it doesn't have the skyscraper reputation)
Paris in the last 10 years has the skyscraper reputation, LA DEFENSE for Examble.

No more driving by this beautiful bridge.

Are you sure it will be A41? It doesn't make sense.

Nice black asphalt

Does every French autoroute have an interrupted marking line, dividing the right lane and the shoulder?

So the motorway northeast of Annecy will now be A410 instead of A41 previously.

Correct. Also, the A401 will become part of the A41.
