Excellent area to stroll around

This is an excellent area to stroll around - Paris is a city for walking! - with amazing architecture, first & foremost of course the Eiffel Tower.

This area of Paris is dominated by the Eiffel Tower and the army museum but still is an enjoyable walk away from these must see tourist attractions. The streets are lovely and wide with little traffic. Cafes and coffee shops abound. The Sorbonne was a good place to visit too.

We stayed in the 7th Arrondissement, and found most everything we wanted to see was also in the 7th. Before traveling to Paris, be sure to go to your local book store, and find a pocket map of Paris. Get to know the boundaries of the 7th, and how to navigate travel. You can get to most sites via city... More

We had never visited Paris in the spring before. This time we managed to do so and went on a tour bus around the beautiful city. This area has most of the main and well know sights of the city. With the trees coming into leaf and the crowds less than in the summer, it was a great time to... More

What I really like in this arrondissement is its small authentic shops proposing all sorts of sophisticated high quality products and food - you simply can't pass without stopping by, and if it's closed - you sincerely regret it!

Our hotel in Paris for four nights was in the 7eme, as much by chance as anything, but I'm happy it was. Yes, there are places to visit here, from the really tall cell tower in the park on the south side of the arrondissement to places on the east side where you can go to make sure Napoleon is... More

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...

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.
