Paris is small: no corner is farther than six miles from the
square in front of Notre-Dame Cathedral. The city has a total
area of 41 square miles (105 square kilometres), if the two
big parks at either extremity are included, and 34 square
miles without them. The city occupies a bowl hollowed out by the
Seine in its prehistoric vigour, and the surrounding heights have
been respected as the limits of the city. The river arches through
the center of town, visiting 10 of the 20 arrondissements.
The old buildings, the riverboats, the changes of colour reflected
by the water, the gardens, and the 32 bridges (many of them handsome)
compose one of the worlds grandest, yet most endearing cityscapes.
Along the river are two of the great set pieces of urban spectacle
in the contemporary world. The first sweeps down from the Palais de
Chaillot on the Right Bank, crosses the river to the Eiffel Tower,
and continues through the gardens of the Champ-de-Mars to the 18th-century Ecole Militaire; the other begins at the Seine and
marches up a broad esplanade to the golden dome of the Invalides.
