When you want to have a night off from cooking you are in for a treat as Paris’s 7th arrondissement is one of the best places to go out in for a meal; you could even dine with romantic views of the lit Eiffel Tower, or even better, inside the tower.
The magical 7th arrondissement is located on what is known as the ‘Left Bank’ or ‘Rive Gauche’ in the very heart of the city centre. Many of Paris’ world famous sights are located within easy access and you are sure to fall in love with the neighbourhood’s charming cobbled streets, stylish shopping opportunities, fabulous architecture and quintessentially Parisian atmosphere.
Historically the district was home to the highest nobility of France from the 17th century onwards. Despite the later French Revolution it remains the second richest district in the city by average income. Many of the beautiful buildings in the area were originally built by aristocratic families but were later confiscated and claimed as national institutions housing many of the museums and treasures you can see here today.
The most famous building in France also happens be located in the heart of the 7th arrondissement – the iconic Eiffel Tower. This most elegant of city landmarks is often locally referred to as ‘La Grande Dame en Fer’ meaning ‘The Grand Iron Lady’ and surely no visit to Paris would be complete without calling by to admire her sturdy frame. Today she remains the most popular man made structure in the world with over 200 million visitors since her construction in 1889. The tower has not always pleased the nation however. It narrowly missed being pulled down barely a few decades after its erection as public enthusiasm for it had quickly dampened. It was only the invaluable radio antenna which had been installed at the top that actually saved it from demolition. Much later it became the international success we know it as today. If you visit at night time you will be rewarded with a magical light show as the tower bursts to life with undulating and flashing colours every hour, on the hour until 11pm. The tower has three different levels you can choose to visit accessed via lift or by stairs. If you are feeling hungry why not try one of the restaurants at the first and second levels? The menu is really rather pricey but dining here is certainly a unique experience.
The 7th arrondissement is also most famous for L’Hôtel National des Invalides (The National Residence of the Invalids), known more commonly as simply Les Invalides. This incredible complex of impressive buildings is jam packed with fascinating museums relating to the military history of France. As well as the Musée de l’Armée you will find the Musée de l’Ordre de la Libération and the Musée d’Histoire Contemporaine. It is also the burial site for some of France’s war heroes, most notably Napoleon Bonaparte.
The 7th arrondissement is indeed museum heaven for visitors hungry for art and French culture. The Musée Rodin celebrates the life and works of the artist and sculptor Augustus Rodin within the beautiful 18th century mansion where he worked and lived. Meanwhile, the charming Musée d’Orsay hosts a world class collection of Impressionist paintings within the former Gare d’Orsay railways station, a most delightful setting.
For a truly unusual visitor experience be sure to pay a visit to the surprisingly popular Les Egouts de Paris or Sewers of Paris exhibition. Made famous as the underground lair of the Phantom of the Opera and by Victor Hugo’s 1862 novel, Les Misérables, these vaulted limestone corridors are absolutely fascinating to explore and incredibly date back to 1370. The ‘unusual factor’ here will certainly appeal to children and adventurous adults. Look out for the subterranean street signs that indicate the busy city thoroughfares the lie just metres away above your head. The entrance to Les Egouts de Paris is located alongside the Pont de l’Alma river crossing.
