The Arc De Triomphe Stairs
The Stairs Down the Arc De Triomphe
All I can say is -- Don't wait til you're too old to climb this one.
Of course, there are 4 legs to the Arc de Triomphe -- built by Napoleon. One of them has a secret lift (elevator) and I only found out about it after my Mom walked up to the stairs with her cane in hand and the French lady admitting us said "Lift?" Heck yes, we'll take the lift.
So, I rode up with my Mom (you can't leave Mom alone in an elevator, she's clastrophobic and needs something to focus on like ME) and then came down these stairs alone while my husband rode down with her.
They're old, but beautiful.
I just liked this picture.
