We ended a memorable stay in Paris with a picnic on Parc du Champ de Mars, with delicacies chosen on Rue Cler. It was a highlight of our trip as we enjoyed wine, cheeses, meats, and pastries alongside Parisians. As the sunset and the Eiffel...More
Long grassy area that goes from L’Ecole Militaire to Eiffel Tower.
Always lots of people here. Taking photos , having a picnic, playing with kids. The grass is rather sparse due to the crowds. On the far sides of the Parc are smaller areas for...More
Having wandered here many years ago I crossed into this park from the river. The first change was a increased security under the Eiffel Tower which squeezed the huge masses into narrow channels at the base. The park is full of people selling tourist tat...More
This was the first place we headed. If you are there on the weekend check out the street market. We made the mistake of thinking it was there every day, no just on the weekend. It is a little dirtier then we expected, but it...More
Beautiful park on the other side of Eiffel tower and a perfect place to take stunning pics of the tower. Just a little walk beside the tower and u are in a garden which is full of vendors and people sitting around and enjoying the...More
Be sure to come from the Ecole Militaire direction to have one of the most beautiful views of the Eiffel tower in my opinion. Also this is a great place to have a pique-nique as it is less crowded than the nearby Trocadero.
The parc is at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, so of course it has great views of it - probably the best you can get without being in a helicopter. When we visited it was very dry and dusty - the dust was everywhere,...More
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.

We didn't feel unsafe in either area. We had dinner about a block away from the Champ de Mars and then walked over to the park to watch the Eiffel Tower twinkle at night. You have to be careful but it wasn't unsafe. Both are pretty central and the metro is crazy easy to get around on.

Not recommended to stroll because it was pretty dark during Jan winter night and you could barely see any beautiful sight. I vaguely remembered it was about 9pm after almost closing time of Eiffel Tower. There was very little light in the park, probably because it was off-peak tourist season and the lights were weak from lamp posts. There were very little people in the park, didn't pay attention to what they were doing (like strolling or just walking through). Spotted 2 persons who tried to take picture of Eiffel Tower from their locations in the park. We did not sense any dodgy characters around in the park. I guessed at that point of time, it was the absence of the view, our wariness of muggers and the coldness of the weather that got us brisk walking. I was with my husband so there were 2 of us. Took us about 10 min to get to the other end.
