Parisian cliché - A view of the Tour Eiffel from the Arc du Triomphe

When the restrictions of the Covid-19 pandemic became more flexible and allowed people to walk around the city, I decided to explore the unusual empty and quiet Paris. It was my first time going up the "Arc du Triomphe". The once crowded city was a memory in the past. I was practically by myself on the top of the Arc. I was able to breath without a mask for a few minutes and appreciate the most beautiful cliché view of Paris.
