The 7th arrondissement is one of the richest of Paris. It is the most well-known to foreigners thanks to the presence on the Champ de Mars of the very famous Eiffel Tower. It is not a very lively neighbourhood, but it is a very touristy neighbourhood, crossed by the Seine and the famous Ponts de l'Alma and de la Concorde. Also located in this arrondissement are the Musée d'Orsay and the Invalides which are both cultural gems. Finally, the Faubourg St Germain is reputed to be the neighbourhood where ambassadors and ministers have chosen to live; it is the neighbourhood of institutions and of politicians (the National Assembly, Unesco).

Routes for everyone :

for lovers of leisurely walks:

You can relax on the green lawns of the Champ de Mars, in the shelter of the enormous Eiffel Tower. And, if you feel like it, you can climb its three stages, by foot or by lift, to see Paris from a height of over 220 metres.

However, if you suffer from vertigo, you may prefer to visit the sewers of Paris, 5 metres underground, in which the names of the roads have been retranscribed.

Don't forget the Invalides, where you can stroll along the numerous flower beds, along the huge 500-metre long Esplanade at the end of which sits the Eglise St Louis, where Napoléon Bonaparte rests.

Once spring has arrived, if you dare to cross the big gates, the courtyards and gardens of Rue du Bac will pleasantly surprise you.

To end the day, you can relax in the Jardin de Babylone, which is in fact an orchard, to the south-east of the 7th arrondissement.

for lovers of culture :

The 7th arrondissement is characterized by being an arrondissement rich in institutions and cultural resources. One of the most famous museums of Paris, which was originally a station, the Musée d'Orsay invites you in to discover the culture, the architecture, the painting, the photography, the decorative and graphic art of the second half of the 19th century. Considered to be a exceptional museum by critics worldwide.

You can also find the Musée Maillol in the Faubourg St Germain.

Near the Invalides, the Musée Rodin, which was opened on Robin's own initiative, will let you discover his work.

You can continue your cultural jaunt in the Musée de l'Armée, which will let you see free with your ticket the dome, the Musée des Plans-Reliefs and the Musée de l'Ordre de la Libération.

for lovers of shopping :

Numerous souvenir shops are available both inside and outside the Eiffel Tower, as well as in the Museums.

You will also find small boutiques in the pedestrian roads, but don't expect to do all your shopping in this area…

To remember : La Tour Eiffel / Le Musée d'Orsay / Les Invalides.
