Celebrating France in Second Life Week: Paris 1900, The Eiffel Tower and the Arch de Triomphe




The great Eiffel Tower, built for an international exhibition and constructed in 1889, and the magnificent Arc de Triomphe, built to commemorate great victories of the Army of France in 1836, are the two single most evocative structures of Paris and France. They are visualized with success at the Paris 1900, a region which shows other well known Parisian structures including Notre Dame Cathedral which will be reviewed tomorrow.

In reality, unlike their placement at Paris 1900 both structures are quite a distance away from each other. However, the charm of this 4-sim region including the mannequins in old costumes populating the streets, the horse and buggy rides, and the hidden bars and rooftops which are well worth exploring make this one of the most romantic destinations to visit in Second Life.
