The Eiffel tower looms above the Seine like a giant playing hide and seek among the grand apartment blocks of the 7th arrondissement of Paris. At the foot of the tower is the Champs de Mars. This stretch of parkland that was once a military exercise ground now teems with tourists all year round.
Facing the tower at the southern end of the Champs de Mars is the Ecole Militaire, the military academy where Napoleon trained.
To the east, the Esplanade des Invalides is another splendid carpet of green that rolls from the gleaming gilt-domed church of the Hotel des Invalides to the Seine and the Pont Alexandre III.
A chilly elegance prevails in the wide boulevards that link these great monuments and green expanses, but drift away from the crowd-filled Champ de Mars, and savour the gracious tree-lined streets bordered by hotels, whose sumptuous apartments are occupied by senior civil servants, captains of industry and rich, retired Americans. Across the river lies the 16th arrondissement of Paris. This area constitutes a sizeable slice of western Paris and, like the 7th, it is full of smart residences occupied by wealthy inhabitants. The reason most tourists and Parisians venture here is to visit one of the museums around the Place du Trocadero : Palais de Chaillot with museums such as the Musee de la Marine, the Musee de l'Homme ; Musee Guimet, located place d'Iena or Musee d'Art Moderne which is in the Palais de Tokyo. It is also to enjoy a magical view accross the Seine to the Eiffel Tower.
