The area
Neighbourhood: 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.

It is indeed where the wealthy live, and the statistics back this up. Lots of large grand apartment buildings. And it is also the home of the Eiffel Tower, the Champs de Mars, etc. Rue Cler is the market street.

Although not one of our favorite areas in Paris, the 7th Arrondissement is a lovely area with quite a few attractions to enjoy.

The 7th is a high end area near the center of Paris. A taxi driver mentioned it’s an expensive neighborhood along with the 16th, 1, 3 and 4. Very safe. Our hotel was on the 7th and points of interests are the Eiffel Tower, Champ de Mars, Rue Cler, Les Invalides, Museum Orsay, among others. There’s a great mix of residential buildings, cafes, restaurants and some shops.

Well the big one is the Tour Eiffel but there are other monuments such as Ecole Militaire and Invalides. Plus the huge Champs de Mars park. This is Paris' wealthiest district, so it is loaded with big expensive apartment blocks with large flats.

The 7th Arrondissement is one of the most interesting and beautiful areas of Paris. We walked quite a lot through this area, mostly visiting various sights. And there is a multitude of amazing sights to visit, such as the Eiffel Tower, the Musee d'Orsay, the Hotel des Invalides, the Musee de l' Armee and Napoleon's Tomb, Musee Rodin and many others. One of the nicest things one can do is also a stroll down the banks of the River Seine, or a cruise if you prefer. Not to be missed.

7th arr. area is a must-see in Paris starting from the iconic place of Eiffel Tower, walking through the Seine riverside either walking (preferred) or by a cruise tour, then passing by many picturesque buildings like a gallery, pretty bridges, Mussee de Orsay ..etc.

This area has some big ticket attractions, Eiffel Tower being the number one in Paris, as-well as Hotel des Invalides and the Musse d’Orsay, we would definitely add the Rodin Museum to that list, there are also some quirky sights like Deyrolle, the taxidermist shop.

Musee D’Orsay - officially, without a doubt, our favourite museum in Paris. We’ve visited a couple of times before but never get tired of this stunning building - a glorious homage to its early days as a railway station. This is the epicentre of impressionism in Paris. On this visit we took advantage of free day. We only queued for 20 minutes and it was quite a relaxed and civilised affair, all good and once inside, we headed straight for the impressionist gallery on the 5th floor, just as fabulous as ever, (see piccies).

Deyrolle - a Paris secret combined with a semi-museum like store. Deyrolle are taxidermists (and have been since 1831) - in fact they have a polar bear for sale in their window - €25,000 if you’re interested. The downstairs shop is nothing special, but up the curving staircase the magic begins and we felt like we’d stepped back in time into a Victorian natural history museum. Their collections of shells, butterflies, insects and minerals were also stunning - the lions and tigers also impressive.

The Rodin Museum, set in one of the many historic ‘hotels’ or aristocratic mansions of Paris and Rodin actually kept a studio/lived there at one point during his career. The Thinker (apparently also known as the Frustrated Musician) and The Kiss were both high points of the museum, but just walking through the gardens and seeing his masterpieces close up, outdoors in daylight - as they were intended to be seen - was outstanding.

Things to do:
Champs de Mars, large public green space, home to the Eiffel Tower.
Palais Bourbon, parliamentary building
Rue saint Dominique, awesome views of the tower, trendy street
Hotel des Invalides, home to Musee de l’Armee, (The Army Museum)
Fontaine des Mars, Monumental fountain, surrounded by restaurants
Rue Cler, market street
Legion of Honour museum, fascinating, the highlight of the museum was the phenomenal collection of international medals - drawer after drawer of beautiful collections from every country in the world.

This arr. on the southern Seine bank has some of the best attractions Paris has to offer.
Here, you'll find the Eiffel tower, the Invalides military museum where's the Napoleon tomb, the fantastic museums of Orsay and Rodin, etc. The area is pretty big, so plan accordingly as for most of the above attractions you need several hours to visit.
