Welcome contestants! Today’s Marriott World of Rewards question is:

Which arrondissement in Paris holds the park named after the Campus Martius of Rome?

The answer is:

7th Arrondissement

This one wasn’t very easy to find, but didn’t take too long either.

What is an Arrondissement? Just like we have districts, boroughs or other regions that divide administrative block in a city, Paris has 20 arrondisements that define 20 different administrative blocks. Arrondisement literally means administrative block.

Which park in Paris is named after Campus Martius of Rome, Italy? Answer is Champ de Mars. For those who’ve been to Paris, this is the part that extends beautifully from the south-east of Eiffle Tower to Ecole Militaire. If you’ve been on the Eiffel tower, you couldn’t have missed it! Here’s a pic reminder:

Well, after I found that it was Champ de Mars – the park named after Campus Martius of Rome, all I needed to do was search that on Google, and voila! Wikipedia said it’s the 7th arrondissement!

Best of luck people! Haven’t won anything yet.. but I hope someone benefits.
