Statue of Liberty in Paris, France

Back

There is one in Paris, too!
It seems that many people easily forget that the Status of Liberty in New York City was a 100 year birthday gift from France.  Is was very appreciated and symbolized the bond between our two great countries at the time.

A lesser known fact is that in memory of that gift of friendship, France also built a Statue of Liberty in Paris. I always enjoy looking it up and remembering the history of the two statues.

To find the Statue of Liberty in Paris, most Baton Mouche (river boat tours) do not go that far down.  They typically stop just before you can see it.  When you are at the Eiffel Tower, walk toward the river and turn left before you cross.  Walk down river for two bridges.  

There is an island that runs between these two bridges.  The statue is on the far end of the island.  You can actually walk up to this smaller version of the Statue of Liberty by crossing the second bridge onto the island and descending the wide stairway to the right.  Cross under the bridge once on the island to get to the statue.

Interestingly enough, they both face each other.
