    4. Code of Hammurabi
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    David is in the Academia in Florence. There will be lots of tourists trying to get a glimpse of the Mona Lisa, but she is worth a look. There are also many other wonderful works of art on display, including my favourite, the "Raft of the Wreck of the Medusa" by Gericault, a wonderful painting.
  6. 6 What is the huge, white building with several domes called?

    1. Sacre-Coeur
    2. Orsay Museum
    3. Notre Dame

    The Sacre-Coeur basilica looks rather like an elaborate wedding cake! It was begun in 1876, completed in 1914 and consecrated in 1919.

    Correct!

    Paris did have a large ferris wheel, but it was not on the banks of the river, and it had been in place since 1999. For one month only, between July and August 2002, a 3km sandy beach was created on the banks of the Seine. It didn't stretch quite to the water, which is just as well, as nobody would want to swim in the Seine! Still, you could build a sandcastle and sunbathe under the palm trees, while gazing at the Eiffel Tower and the beautiful buildings of wonderful Paris.
