There is a historical axis that runs through Paris from the Tuileries Gardens past the Luxor Obelisk up the Avenue des Champs Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe, which you can see in this photograph, and was originally commissioned by Napoleon Bonaparte, and this was one of the concepts that Andre Le Notre had, when he was redesigning the gardens for the former Palais des Tuileries.

Yet when the Palais des Tuileries was destroyed, this opened up the view even further from the famous Musee du Louvre, right up the Allee Centrale of the Jardin des Tuileries, which is where we were when we took this photo, looking past the Place de la Concorde and of course far beyond, with the axis now going to the Grand Arche in the Defense area.
