While not much of a destination in its own right, the Liberty Flame is a nice landmark to pause at on the way to other major sites. I usually pass it on the way between the Eiffel Tower and Champs Elysses, as the Liberty Flame is at the end of Avenue George V, which allows a straight route between Champs Elysees and the Quai Branley where the Eiffel Tower sits. Most visitors to the Liberty Flame are now focused on paying tribute to Princess Diana, who died in the tunnel that begins near the flame. However, the flame is actually a thank-you gift from the United States to France, given in 1987 to recognize the friendship between the countries with this replica of the torch that the Statue of Liberty holds. The Liberty Flame is a very pretty sculpture. Unfortunately, the traffic in this spot of Paris is usually very hectic, and I always feel a little threatened by zooming scooters when I cross to the street island that the Liberty Flame stands on. Be careful when you cross here!
