We are in Paris, the capital of France and one of the most historic cities in Europe. Paris includes the city of Paris and its surroundings. In addition, it is the cultural and economic capital of France, its most important focal point and the seat of many international organizations, such as UNESCO.

The film opens with the Eiffel Tower, the trademark of the city of Paris. The lens stands on the landmark and shows us part of the Champ de Mars area, the large public greenspace, the traffic and parked cars that are there as well as the Pont d'Iéna bridge, a bridge over the Seine that connects the Eiffel Tower on the left bank with the area Trocadero on the right bank, leading from the 7th to the 16th district. The bridge was built from 1808 to 1814, was registered as a historical monument in 1975 and since 1999 is included in the demarcation of the Seine on the banks of the Seine in Paris, which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The film closes with views of the Seine, a riverboat passing under the bridge, with the filmmaker standing on a different riverboat as well as a business with Bateaux Mouches (open excursion boats that provide visitors to Paris, with a view of the city from along the river Seine).
