“Different significance”
Reviewed 20 July 2013 via mobile

Yes, it's just a flame but there's a better story. It was given to Paris to commemorate 100 years of cooperation, but it's now referred to as Diana's Flame. It sits directly above the tunnel where Lady Di died in the infamous car accident. When you view it with this in mind it changes your perspective. Also, it takes now time to see it (if you're in the area).

“Nothing too exciting”
Reviewed 10 April 2013

I came across it by accident and wouldn't say it's very noteworthy in terms of thing to see in paris. If you're short on time in the beautiful city I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to find it.

“Golden flame...hmmm”
Reviewed 17 February 2013 via mobile

I saw it today while on a boat tour and thought it looked a lot like statue of liberty flame. Didn't know it was dedicated to princess Diane. Probably won't walk to it, but nice facts about it

“Nothing exceptional”
Reviewed 13 February 2013 via mobile

The meaning and significance of the flame is better than the actual physical flame( my opinion ) this is a good quick thing to see on your way to other attractions but I wouldn't plan a whole day around this flame.

“Good as a Walk-by Tribute to International Goodwill”
Reviewed 6 February 2013

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!
