Central Paris photo tour

From Louvre to Arc de Triomphe, but not by the Champs-Elysées...











Rue Réaumur, surrounded by typical parisian office buildings:




Parisian metro has several entrances right in buildings, but I think that this sign at Sentier station is quite unique:






Some side streets between rue Réaumur and boulevard de Bonne Nouvelle:








We reach boulevard de Bonne Nouvelle near from the famous (for parisians) Rex cinema.




Approaching the stock exchange:






Gardens like this one are quite rare in the 2nd arrondissement...








Rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré, known for its luxury shops:






Reaching Pont Alexandre III:






This bridge is a gift of the russian tsar Alexander the 3rd to France (typical bateaux-mouches comment ).




We are now on the left bank.














Back on the right bank...






Now we're approaching the Champs-Elysées:






Avenue Matignon : here are the AXA insurance company headquarters:














Leaving the business district, now more residential streets:
















Reaching Parc Monceau's beautiful fences:








I quite like the southern 17e arrondissement because of the neorenaissance buildings.




















We return to a more crowded district.






A view towards La Défense:




A gated community:




Office building on Avenue Hoche, leading to the Arc de Triomphe:


Hope you liked it.

There is l'Hotel Matignon


And there is la Rue de Varenne; it's a norrow street without a lot of shops because many Embassies or Ministères are located there.

Thank you for the comments.
@ Parisianstyle: je suis impardonnable, surtout qu'on me l'a déjà dit plusieurs fois.

For a moment I thought this thread was from Minatu ku and I wondered if he was not feeling right since he rarely shows us pics from the wealthier West of Paris but I now realize I misread and that this is not a thread from Minatu ku.
