The Eiffel Tower in Paris is one of the world's most recognizable landmarks.  The great lattice tower built as the entrance for the 1889 World's Fair stands 324 meters above the Champ de Mars, and is the most-visited monument in the world.  Who better to film France's most iconic site by drone than one of France's top drone piloting companies and AirVuz contributor Freeway Prod?  Using a DJI Inspire drone, they captured this spectacular aerial footage in the course of a project they did for French TV.

Here's a stunning aerial tour of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, created by top AirVuz contributor Freeway Prod.  The footage was captured shortly before the landmark was badly damaged in a fire which broke out on April 15, 2019.  The fire, which occurred while the church was undergoing renovation, destroyed its main spire.  Considered one of the world's 2-3 most famous churches and immortalized in Victor Hugo's 1831 classic the Hunchback of Notre Dame, Notre-Dame de Paris (as it's formally called) is currently being restored.

Contributor and pilot bartreding used a DJI Mavic Air to create this beautiful drone video of the great city of Paris, France.  The video opens with an epic shot of the Seine River, with the Eiffel Tower looming in the background.  From there you'll see some shots looking westward towards the La Defense high-rise district.  Then it's on to the Tuileries Gardens and the adjacent Louvre Pyramid, some amazing shots of the Arc de Triomphe, and ending with some daytime and nighttime shots of the Eifel Tower.

Paris: The Arc de Triomphe

Sphereview created this magnificent bird's eye view of the Arc de Triomphe in central Paris, one of the most iconic sites of Europe.  It anchors the western end of the Champs-Élysées, the French capital's most important roadway.  It was built as a memorial to France's war dead in the Napoleonic Wars, and its Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is the country's greatest memorial for its World War I dead.  The Arc was used as the filming location for a key scene in the 2018 film Mission Impossible: Fallout.

Here's an awesome aerial view of one of the great sights of Paris, compliments of sphereview. It's the Place de la Concord, the largest public square in the French capital.  It is situated at the eastern end of the Champs-Élysées, in the eighth arrondissement.  During the French Revolution, it went under another name: the Place de la Révolution.  It was here that King Louis XVI was executed by guillotine in January, 1793, and where his widow Marie Antoinette met the same fate nine months later.

Prepare to be amazed by this stunning drone video from the grounds of the Louvre Museum in Paris, compliments of contributor and pilot sphereview.  The video does an especially good job of capturing the sights which lie just downstream on the parallel-running nearby Seine River: the Jardin des Tuileries, then the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel (a smaller version of the  Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile), then the famous pyramid entrance, and finally into the courtyard of the great museum itself.

Sacre Coeur Basilica Paris

Sphereview created this stunning drone video of Sacré-Cœur, one of the most famous churches in Paris.  The construction of the basilica was completed in 1914, on the eve of World War I, having been started nearly four decades earlier.  It sits atop Montmartre hill in the 18th arrondissement.  Its conception was partially tied to the wave of repentance which swept France following its defeat by Germany in the Franco Prussian War of 1870 and the ensuing civil war sparked by the Paris Commune.

Top contributor BeemFlights created this magnificent drone video of Paris, the great French capital.  The video alternates between the two most iconic sites in the City of Light: the Eiffel Tower and Notre-Dame de Paris, otherwise known as Notre Dame Cathedral.  The latter, which is one of the world's most well known churches, caught fire on April 15, 2019 and was badly damaged.  Located on the Île de la Cité in the River Seine, the 13th century Gothic landmark is one of France's greatest cultural treasures.

Pei which crowns the new entrance.  The museum was a filming location for the Da Vinci Code (2006), one of history's highest-grossing films.

Phildrone created this amazing drone video of Fountainbleau, one the largest French châteaux (castles).  It is situated a half hour drive southeast of Paris.  The site was built upon as early as the 12th century.  The castle took much of its present shape during the reign of King Francis I in the 16th century.  Fountainbleau was at least a seasonal home to almost all of the French monarchs from that time until the French Republic was declared in 1871.  It is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Top contributor Etienne Lehuede used a DJI Phantom 3 drone to create this amazing bird's eye view of the Paris La Defense district.  This is a modern downtown district which was built west of the Paris city limits beginning in the late 1950's.  Its buildings serve as corporate headquarters to some of the largest companies in France, including its "national champions".  The view of its skyscrapers beyond the "traditional" Paris landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower is one of the most iconic sights in France.

Check out these amazing aerial views of France's Palace of Versailles, compliments of contributor Lumy.  It's located roughly 30 km from central Paris, in the Yvelines Department of Northern France.  Converted from a hunting lodge to a royal castle by King Louis XIV in the 17th century, Versailles was the principal residence of the French Royal Family for roughly a hundred years leading up to the French Revolution.  A UNESCO World Heritage site, the great palace is the second-most visited site in Greater Paris after the Louvre Museum.

Paris Suburbs by DJI Mavic Pro

While Paris is without doubt one of the world's greatest cities, the population living within its actual city limits is actually quite modest - only about 2.1 million as of 2019.  What puts Paris in the front rank of the world's cities is the enormous population of the metropolitan area - over 12 million in the Île-de-France region of which it is the center.  In this drone video by top contributor Etienne Lehuédé, you'll get an aerial glimpse of this vast suburban sea, home to 10 million souls.

Arc de Triomphe Paris

JayDeeBTW

Although not as famous as the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe of Paris, France is still one of the most significant and famous landmarks in the world. Built between 1806 and 1836, its triumphal arches were meant to reflect the political changes and power struggles at the time, and were an ode to those who fought in the Napoleonic Wars. Its location at the center of the Place Charles de Gaulle is just at the western end of the Champs- Élysées. See it in all of its glory, courtesy of pilot JayDeeBTW.
