7th ARRONDISSEMENT OF PARIS GUIDE: SPEND LESS, DO MORE

Welcome to the 7th Arrondissement of Paris

7th-Arr-Musee-dOrsay-at-nightWhen planning a visit to ‘The City of Light’ it is likely that your intended visit will start in the 7th arrondissement and as the location of the landmark Eiffel Tower it certainly makes sense. That, combined with a trip to many of the other attractions in the vicinity including the Parc du Champ de Mars and museums including the Musee d’Orsay which houses some of the city’s most beautiful impressionistic art and the stunning architecture of the Musee Rodin is not a bad place to start your trip.

But, if you have a few more days to spend in Paris…

There are a number of things to do beyond a ‘traditional’ tourist visit to the major tourist attractions is complete. The Tomb of Napoleon, the iconic resting place of the emperor’s body is one such example. If you’re a modern history aficionado then this is an especially interesting sight to at least say you’ve visited and but always worth a visit for an important historical lesson even if not. This is indeed a great place to start your walking tour.

7th-Arr-Eiffel-Tower-from-the-le-champ-de-marsTo continue your exploration visit one of the memorable or noteworthy cathedrals while you’re in the neighbourhood. An interesting example is to be found at The Soldiers’ Church of Les Invalides which is better known for which while less outwardly opulent as some of its more familiar counterparts is sure to provide you with a visually delightful treat on the inside.

Or spend a few more Euros while you’re in town…

It might cost more than a few more Euros here but you are sure to find a memorable souvenir at Le Bon Marche, the city’s oldest department store even if your budget only extends to the fabulous ground floor food hall.

As the only country in the world that allows this type of tour, The Paris Sewer Museum is an interesting option if you happen to like that sort of stuff. All jokes aside, it’s an unusual experience to say the least, but you will no doubt remember delving into the underside of the city so to speak and it’s likely to be something you won’t forget anytime soon.

Feeling flamboyant?

If your time is limited, one of the best ways to see the sights is by zipping around the city in a vintage Citroen. Take a private three hour tour seeing some of the best sights the city has to offer in authentic Parisien style.

If you’re after a very extravagant but undeniably memorable dining experience, try some of the Michelin starred chef’s recipes at the Jules Vernes Restaurant. It’s located with spectacular views from the second floor of the Eiffel Tower and it understandably requires reservations well in advance and needless to say appropriate attire. Check the website for details before you prepare to enjoy the food, service and view for which this formal restaurant is famed and then prepare your and then prepare to indulge!
