This neighbourhood in the 7th arrondissement is one of the richest and most elegant in the city. The 1700s architecture is immediately evident in the slate roofs, in the white decorated stone walls and the typical black hand-crafted iron balconies. The gardens of Champs de Mars start at the Eiffel Tower and extend through the neighbourhood. The area is crossed by wide tree-lined streets and the architecture of the buildings is very Art Nouveau. Bars and restaurants are expensive, as are grocery shops. Dont miss the Hotel des Invalides, ancient hospital for war veterans, and the Muse Rodin. There are only a few bars and cafs open at night.
