The Places The tour of Paris starts with the Eiffel Tower and includes the famous landmarks of the French capital, the Churches of Notre-Dame and the SacrT Coeur, the OpTra Garnier and the great river, the Seine, that runs through the city. The tour ends with a nocturnal view of Paris and an excursion to Chartres, with its magnificent cathedral. The Music Music for the tour is by Beethoven, who at one time seemed to hope for employment in Paris. His Eroica Symphony was at first intended as a celebration of his one-time hero, Napoleon, but reflected, in the end, his disillusion when Napoleon had himself crowned as Emperor. The music used also includes Beethoven's Coriolanus Overture, written, not for Shakespeare's play, but for a contemporary drama by Heinrich von Collin.

I'm writing this as I'm watching. There are a lot of long, repeated scenes such as in the library, Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel tower that take up so much valuable time. Considering how many wonderful sights Paris has to offer, why must we spend so much time seeing repeated scenes? And in no particular logical order either (eg. Sacre Couer)? The video keeps jumping from one site to another then back again.
Apparently the producer wanted an artfully done video--and it is--rather than just a souvenir, but I still think it could've been been more satisfying to both tastes if edited more logically. There's much to love in this video, but again, I wanted to see more of Paris, a little less unnecessary detail (a few seconds less on lettuce and artichokes).
