Every trip to Paris brings me to the 7th Arrondissement on the Left Bank, usually to attend a temporary exhibition at the magnificent Musee d'Orsay. But I also like to stroll in the Rodin Museum's lovely garden or enjoy the artworks from the indigenous cultures of Asia, Africa, Oceania and the Americas in the Musee du Quai Branly. Sometimes I...

We cannot say enough good things about the 7 Arrondissement. It is our go to place to stay when we visit Paris. We generally stay in the rue Clar area which is close to transportation and within easy walking distance to almost everything in Paris. Our favorite Metro stop is Ecole Militaire which connects to every part of Paris. We... More

A very useful way of getting between the sights of the 7th arrondissment is via the double decker trains of the RER line C. This follows the river bank and whisks you from the Eiffel Tower in the west to Musee d'Orsay in the east within minutes. Trains are a little less frequent than the normal metro.

The Eiffel Tower is located in the 7th Arrondissement as is the Musee d'Orsay. The aristocratic neighborhood of Saint-Germain is situated in this arrondissement on the left bank of the Seine. My wife and I walked many of the streets of this district. It has outstanding architecture and the most recognizable structure in the world, the Eiffel Tower, which is... More

There are different areas, some of they very quiet and bourgeois, other very quiet and ordinary, and many really nice areas with many small to large shops selling all kind of products - food, artwork, clothes, restaurants, bars - also schools and universities, etc. It is located in the centre of Paris between Montparnasse and the Seine river.

Walking through the seventh in Paris means awesome bakeries, restaurants, shops, people watching, dog watching and fun. Not to be missed, and please finish up near the Eiffel Tower at dusk to see the lights glow against the blue black sky of twilight.

A bit in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower and the back of the Musee D'Orsay, this area in several ways gives the feel of a more mundane Paris - but mostly because there are not so many tourists here. The relatively few who are here are mostly walking on the road to either the Museum D'Orsay or Invalides with... More

The 7th arrondisement is a very chic residential area. It boasts of Invalides, Ecole Militaire, Rue Cler, Rue St Dominic, luxury & class. Great restaurants, beautiful streets and lovely walks are to be enjoyed here. Nowhere near as touristy as the other popular districts (1st, 4th, 6th etc), this area exudes charm and prestige and is very well worth visiting.

What better way to begin the enjoyment of this district, than by viewing the iconic sight of the Eiffel Tower from the Rodin Museum and glorious gardens. Which leads you to another iconic view of Paris through the clock at the Orsay Museum, after which a spot of lunch next to the gilded ballroom upstairs will prepare you for some... More

Staying in Tour Eiffel / Invalides

Neighborhood Profile
Tour Eiffel / Invalides
With the Eiffel Tower at its core, the Invalides area of Paris is guaranteed to impress. Golden towers and Baron Haussmann's urban vision meet military precision, stretching avenues, and luscious lawns. The area boasts the Musée D’Orsay, the tomb of Napoleon, the National Parliament and UNESCO, as well as luxurious, exclusive residences. In fine restaurants and at the weekend markets, families, diplomats, and politicians brush shoulders with the tourists who come to see this postcard-perfect area for themselves.
