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

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.

Thanks for the information on arrondissement and on the area arround the Eiffel Tower. Appreciated your diligence in finding this one!

Arjun,
Noticed your blog due to the Marriott contest. I like to find the answers myself but feeling ill enough today to let you help me answer the question!
Interestingly, a correct or incorrect answer each warrant an entry into the contest.

I noticed the blog on Bamjan. What is your faith? How do you feel about this boy?

Has anyone won anything from this contest? I guess we all have a glimmer of “hope” in us that we will be that “one winner” =) Thanks for the help especially with this one! =)

I have not won anything either. It is fun though. Great to find all of “you”. Thanks for the beautiful photo! I need to get there one day!
