The Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame


Paris d'or


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.

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.

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.

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.

Eiffel Tower Drone Views


Eiffel Tower Paris


The 1889 Exposition Universelle was a world's fair held in Paris, France to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution.  The giant structure built as the entrance to the fair was a wrough-iron lattice tower designed by the noted architect Gustave Eiffel.  Intended to only stand for 20 years and then dismantled, the Eiffel Tower ended up becoming perhaps the most recognized symbol of France and one of Europe's top tourist destinations.  Check it out from an aerial perspective in this fantastic piece by sphereview.  

Suburban Paris

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.
