QUICK TRIP

France Miniature
Bravo to the artisans who built the 1/30 scale replicas of one hundred or so historic monuments and villages for France Miniature, the largest scale model park in Europe. A two-hour cultural and playful visit just 20 minutes from Paris. Above, the Arc de Triomphe, Paris; below, Notre Dame de Fourvière, Lyon.

Vocabulary
une maquette:  a scale model, mockup
une maquettiste:  a model maker (architecture)
ludique:  playful

The 1/30 scale gives this result.
