Allée des Cygnes (Promenade of the Swans)
I walked with my family in tow along the stunning Allée des Cygnes at 9pm with daylight streaming through the trees, creating this magnificent light.
Paris, without a doubt, is reinvented during each season, though for me shorts and sandals signal a time to stop and breathe in the intoxicating scenery.
Stretched along the six-block-long and extremely skinny Île des Cygnes, the path drops off on both sides, revealing the modern Beaugrenelle section of the the 15th Arrondissement on one side and the open space and elegant apartment buildings along the avenue du President Kennedy in the 16th Arrondissement. And just for good measure you will find a smaller version of the Statue of Liberty at the western end of the island. Enjoy an evening stroll wherever this may find you!
