Paris’s greatest tourist attraction, the Eiffel Tower, is at the west of the 7th, and the area also hosts two of the city’s finest museums: the Musée D’Orsay and Quai Branly. This is another picture-postcard part of Paris and one of the city’s most desirable residential neighbourhoods. The 7th is the political heart of Paris as well: the French parliament is here, in the area known as Les Invalides, as are numerous embassies and ministries and the headquarters of UNESCO. Added attractions for residents include the neighbourhood’s wide, tree-lined avenues; the Champs de Mars gardens around the Eiffel Tower; and the largely pedestrianised Seine-side quays. Shoppers can visit Le Bon Marché, Paris’s oldest and still one of its best department stores.
