Paris: Misc.

Within the three wings of the Louvre is the Arc du Carrousel, another arch to celebrate Napoleon's victories.  Outside of it are the Tuileries Gardens and the Place de la Concorde.  The obelisk is from Eygpt, and the fountains are based on naval themes.  This area is a pleasant way to recharge your batteries after the exhaustion of the Louvre.
