The Little Arc de Triomphe was built to celebrate Napoleon Bonaparte's victory in a series of wars in 1805, opposite the Louvre Museum. Between the red and white marble columns are three circular arches, which are luxuriously decorated. The four horses at the top of the door were gilded galloping horses from St. Mark's Church in Italy. The original was returned to Italy in 1815 and is now a reproduction. Bronze horses are gilded goddess of peace and victory. The Arc de Triomphe passes through the Louvre and there are many tourists around it.
The Little Arc de Triomphe is just across the glass pyramid of the Louvre. It's a very beautiful Dudley Garden. But here we have to be very careful. We meet the Gypsies on one side. Once they are entangled, it's very difficult to get away. Fortunately, a French lady on the other side helped drive them away.
Many visitors to the Louvre pass through the Little Arc de Triomphe. The scenery around the Arc de Triomphe is good, but the public order is very poor. A group of teenagers, holding small boards, asked tourists to sign, saying they were raising money for a charitable organization. Take the opportunity to block the sight with boards or burglary schoolbags, and get away immediately if you can or can't. When we went there, we met with this situation twice. It is said that the police are also concerned about protecting the safety of tourists.
Opposite the pyramid at the entrance of the Louvre, the sculpture on the door is beautiful. There is a small underground entrance beside the door to the Louvre, which saves a lot of queuing time. Negroes roaming nearby, Gypsies more, pay attention to property, ignore them.
Compared with the Arc de Triomphe in Charles de Gaulle Square, the Little Arc de Triomphe (also known as the Carrousel Arc de Triomphe) seems to have been less famous than the former. In fact, it has a much longer history than the former. It was built to celebrate the victories of Napoleon Bonaparte in a series of wars in 1805. There are four bronze horses at the top of the Little Arc of Triumph. In the center is the statue of Napoleon, and on both sides are the gold-plated goddess of peace and victory. The sculpture inside the arch is no less beautiful than the Arc de Triomphe.
The Little Arc de Triomphe in Paris, also known as the Caruso Arc de Triomphe, is located in the Pyramid Square of the Louvre. The statue of four horses duplicated on a small door resembles the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. This time we built it to celebrate Napoleon's victory in a series of foreign wars in 1805. It is a symbol of France's glorious past.
The Little Arc de Triomphe is just at the entrance of the Louvre. What attracts me most is that a group of pigeons flies around the entrance of the Little Arc de Triomphe, matched with the blue sky, the scenery is good. Compared with the big Arc de Triomphe, it's the Mini version, and it's a bit old. The Louvre in the background feels very grand.
