The Eiffel Tower and the French Statue of Liberty on the river Seine in Paris, France. There are two smaller copies of the Statue of Liberty in Paris. The larger of these is 35 feet tall (including the base). You can see this on the boat cruise at the far end of the narrow island called the Allée des Cygnes (“alley of the swans”).
