Recommendation by Lemi

Travel west on the River Seine to Île aux Cygnes where those in the know go for an unhampered view of the Eiffel Tower. The La France Renaissante Monument (situated at the island’s northern tip) overlooks the river and Paris’s iconic landmark in the distance. Here, you’ll only have to share the view with a few other tourists, local joggers, and newlyweds doing photo shoots. On the other end of the island, a small replica of the Statue of Liberty looks west toward its States-side sister. There’s a climbing wall as well as some public fitness equipment under Pont de Grenelle, inviting joggers to pound pavement from one end to the other. Between the two tail-ends of the island, Île aux Cygnes is basically a long pathway flanked by a grove of trees. Benches are everywhere, so read, sketch, or write undisturbed as the River Seine drifts calmly by.
