If you accept "Eiffel" for the Tour d'Eiffel, maybe you would accept "Louvre" for Musee' du Louvre?

Maybe it's nitpicking, but, on that picture you can barely see nothing of Louvre Museum. This is only the entrance to the museum. My opinion...

Yes it shows the "Pyramide du Louvre", not the "Musée du Louvre".

It's a clue, it doesn't have to be exhaustive. The image for the series of paintings doesn't show the whole series. And thankfully people have made movies about things other than the moon.

Not nitpicking at all. As a French, I tried "pyramide du Louvre", and then I had to figure out that the "pyramide" part was to be taken off. :)

Austrian born. Better not get too much into where the royalty is technically from (Is Philip VI of Spain half Greek? Or is that almost half German? Is Duke of Edniburgh Greek?)

With the moon one, you may want to be more specific about what you are seeking. I tried every variation of the man in the moon that I could think of only to find that I was way off base.

It's a pretty famous early film. France didn't invent the Moon, just in case anyone was wondering.

I tried man in the moon first, then cheese, then gave up. I know they didn't invent the moon, but I thought maybe they were the first to have folklore about the man in the moon. Didn't get the reference to the movie.

Agree that the moon clue is too vague. I tried “le voyage dans la lune”, “a trip to the moon”,”Sci fi”, “sci fi genre”, “science fiction”, “science fiction movie” etc and eventually gave up!

I never knew the Pont d'Avignon was a bridge to nowhere. I've been to Avignon and even did the "Sur le Pont d'Avignon" folk dance literally on the bus to Avignon and still didn't recognize it. Dangit!

Agreed. Several of the answers are in french, but the painting series is in english with no variations accepted. I tried nympheas several times, with different spellings...

Level 39
Mar 12, 2018
Good quizz... but you should accept the real name of the Monet's series of paintings : les nympheas. "Water lilies" is just a translation, not the original name. Thanks https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_Lilies_(Monet_series)

Nympheas should definitely be accepted.

Level 58
May 27, 2018
Yes: please include original title of Nympheas for Monet's "water lilies" (I spent an afternoon in "Giverny" where Monet's house can be visited, including the gardens and the famous water lily ponds. Very close to Paris, worth a detour)

The Pont d'Avignon wasn't always a bridge to nowhere. God told a young 12th century shepherd called Bénezet that there must be a bridge across the mighty Rhone. It was nearly a kilometer long on completion and was used for centuries. Today you can see where it went to, as the impressive Tour Philip le Bel in Villeneuve-lez-Avignon, where the bridge ended, still stands.

Pont D'Avignon is the tourist name, the bridge to nowhere is actually Pont Saint-Benezet.

Should accept Etretat for the region where it accepts Normandy as it is more specifically the location pictured (Etretat is the shown, which is in the region of Normandy).

As you said, the question asks for a region, and Étretat is just a town...

Instead of asking more to be accepted, here is a request to accept less. I tried macaroon to see if it would be accepted. And it was, now that wouldnt be a problem at all if that was allready a name for something else.

Difference between macaroon and macaron in a picture

No use to spread more confusion

Wow, you're absolutely right, Sifhraven. This is twice now that I've been credited with a correct answer for that image and an answer of "macaroon". But I was wrong. A macaroon is completely different. By being credited with a correct answer, I learned nothing.

Fortunately, scrolling through the comments, I came across yours and the link you provide. Thanks for pointing this out. Now, I've actually learned something.
