Place Charles de Gaulle | 6 pm, 12-2009
Place Charles de Gaulle, 6 pm, December 2009 | There's not another rond-point like it in France, a dozen boulevards converging on Napoleon's masterpiece, the Arc de Triomphe. Anyone who's ever navigated a car around this landmark can tell you it's a heart-stopping experience. Better to arrive by Métro and appreciate the magnificent structure from the relative safety of the Champs-Élysées. Bring along a camera and a tripod and you can turn the cars into streaks of light.
