Located on the south bank of the Seine as it makes a grand arching turn, the 7th Arrondissement is home to several of Paris' best know landmarks. Developed in the 19 th century with wide avenues, generous open park space, elegant mansions and stately Apartment blocks, this area is delight to explore on foot. Walk from the Eiffel Tower through... More

We stayed in Rue Cler near the Ecole Milataire and Champs de Mars. I really love this area and there is so much to see, lots of great places to eat and shops.

Mostly residential with many small bistros and restaurants, along with the Eiffel Tower and Invalides. There are also many parks and several markets on various days. If you like Paris off the beaten trail, this would be your go to place.

It's close to everything that I like about Paris and what it's not close to public transportation is close to. I've stated, in other posts, that I was ill while I was there and there was so much to do in the 7th Arrondissement, and on good days the Eiffel Tower was just a brisk walk away. When I wasn't...

It is well worth getting off the Hop on and Hop off Bus or other mode of transport if in the area. There are numerous places to see ranging from the Eiffel Tower to Les Invalides where Napoleon among many famous French Military Officers are buried. There is also the Musee Rodin, Ecolle Militaire, Musee de L'Armee and Champs de... More

During our most recent stay in Paris, we toured the city both onboard a hop-on, hop-off bus and also on foot. We visited the 7th Arrondissement on several occasions and spent quite a bit of time walking around the district soaking up the historic atmosphere and the classic sights. Whether it was the Eiffel Tower, Napoleon’s Tomb, the Museum of... More

for sure you will visit the 7th arrondissement because some of the most famous paris attractions are here. just to name a few: the wiffel tower, musee rodin, napoleon's tomb, esplanade des invalides. the good part is that most of the places you should visit are very close one to another so everything can be seen in one day.

Loved the 7th. We rented an apartment in the 7th for two months. There is hardly place more convenient and still a neighborhood. Our apartment was a block and a half from the MEYRO station. This made getting anywhere a breeze. A block away were groceries and bakeries to do all our food shopping. After two weeks we were recognized... 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.
