Make the Eiffel Tower your starting point when exploring Paris.

Start the day with the view from The Eiffel Tower, the landmark of Paris, designed by architect  Gustave Eiffel and built in 1889 as a 'temporary gateway' to L'Exposition Universelle - a fair to celebrate the centenary of the French Revolution.  

At night, the Tower lights up and a strobe circles from the top. But, for the first ten minutes of every hour, the whole Eiffel Tower sparkles like a diamond!

NEW! A glass floor at 57 meters above the ground.

The Eiffel Tower, les Invalides and Rodin Museum area guide

From the Eiffel Tower walk along Champ de Mars and take as many photos as possible. You can also have a picnic here.

Don’t Miss! Rue Saint Dominique, Rue de Grenelle & Rue Cler

Located between the Champ de Mars gardens and the Esplanade les Invalides, this area has lovely shops, restaurants and cafés.

Visit the famous Rue Cler market street that has a great selection of food shops, including Davoli (Italian delicatessen), La Sablaise Poissonerie (fish merchants) and several fruit and vegetable shops.

Continue toward Les Invalides.

Les Invalides

This vast complex was founded in 1675, by Louis XIV's, to take in French ex-servicemen and handicapped war veterans - from whom it gets its name, "Invalides". It also houses the church Saint-Louis des Invalides, the église du Dôme, the Musée de l'Armée, the Musée de l'Ordre de la Libération and the Musée des Plans-Relief.
