7th arrondissement

The 7th arrondissement is considered to be one of the noblest of Paris’s arrondissements. Whilst home to iconic monuments such as the Eiffel Tower, the Assemblée Nationale and many ministries in the area, the 7th arrondissement has a surprisingly neighbourly feel.

The Eiffel Tower has a constant presence in the 7th arrondissement, surprising and pleasing locals and tourists alike when parts of it are revealed unexpectedly through small side streets like rue Saint Dominique, rue de Grenelle and rue de Monttessuy.

In this district, you will also find the Parc des Invalides which is a complex of monuments and museums, including Musée de l'Armée which is the final resting place of Napoleon, as well as one of Paris’s largest open-air spaces. On Place du Palais Bourbon, you can enjoy a quick lunch or coffee amongst politicians and journalists working in the Assemblée Nationale. Moving one street to the left, you can admire the view of the Basilique Sainte-Clotilde before visiting the gardens of the Musée Rodin which are embellished with sculptures from the famed artist.

Many of the historical buildings in this neighbourhood have been transformed into universities and schools, injecting a new lease of life into these important monuments. Walking on the west side of Les Invalides, you will hear a mix of English and European accents as this area is home to the American University of Paris.

The experts say

Les Berges, a pedestrianised stretch of land on the Left Bank, is a project that was adopted with the intention of providing green spaces to the city. This development offers activities and lounging spaces for Parisians to enjoy the river Seine.

The property market in 7th arrondissement

Housing the most prestigious monuments in Paris, the 7th arrondissement has some of the most expensive properties in the Paris property market with prices nearly on par with the neighbouring 6th arrondissement. Properties located near the Eiffel Tower, or properties with views of the monument, have a higher price tag.
