Our Insiders' Article

Arc de Triomphe

Exit the Metro or RER station “Charles de Gaule – Etoile” via exit 1 Champs-Elysées, and you will find yourself at the beginning of the Champs-Elysées, at the foot of the monumental Arc de Triomphe de l’Etoile. Finished in 1836 after 30 years of painstaking construction, the Arc de Triomphe de l’Etoile is now an iconic monument in Paris with the tomb of the Unknown Soldier of WWI and the eternal flame at its feet and the sculptures on the arch illustrating the victories of Napoleon’s army.

Parisianist Fun Fact: in 1997, an Australian citizen cooked fried eggs ever the eternal flame. Access the arch via the underground walkway (entrance is in the walkway). It’s free to walk on the base of the Arch, but climbing up to the top isn’t (9,50€ / 10AM-10:30PM). We suggest climbing up only on a sunny day for the view. Note that the climb up is tiring: 195 steps on a narrow staircase.


Take Avenue Kleber on the southwest and walk all the way to the end of the avenue. Avenue Kleber is a typical large Parisian avenue, with beautiful Haussmann style buildings and luxurious hotels. At the end is the Palais de Chaillot, also referred to as Trocadéro, and here is the most impressive view of the Eiffel Tower. The Palais de Chaillot was built for the Universal Exposition in 1937, replacing the 1878 Palais du Trocadéro. It now houses 3 museums (Musée de l’Homme (ethnographic), Marine Museum and Architecture Museum), and a large theater.

Parisianist Fun Fact: Before moving to New York, the United Nations offices were located in the Palais de Chaillot, as well as the first NATO offices.

Eiffel Tower

Walk down the stairs and through the Trocadéro Garden. Cross the bridge to find yourself at the foot of the Eiffel Tower or on the docks of the sightseeing Bateaux Mouches boats. Built as a temporary structure in 1900 for the Universal Exposition, the 324m iron lady still stands as the highest building in Paris. Climbing the Eiffel Tower (14,5€ / 9:30AM-11PM) is recommended for its 360° view on Paris, but queues can be long. Book your ticket in advance here to save time.

Parisianist Tip: DON’T try to climb the Eiffel tower bare-handed like Alain Robert in 1996, but DO try to beat the stair climbing to the 2nd floor record in 3minutes and 12 seconds.

Champ de Mars

The Champ de Mars lies in the continuation of the axis Trocadéro - Eiffel Tower, and is one of the biggest open parks in Paris. After being a farming ground before 1765, the area was then used as a training field by the military school (“Ecole Militaire” still located at the end of Champ de Mars), before becoming a public park. As a public park, Champ de Mars welcomed many events, such as Republican events during the French Revolution in the 1790’s. Today, tens of thousands of people gather for the annual 14th of July fireworks and concerts, and is a favorite spot for summer picnics with a lot of activities for children (pony ride, playgrounds, kids karting…)  

Parisianist Fun Fact: 5 Universal Expositions took place on the Champ de Mars:  1867187818891900 et 1937.

Ecole Militaire

Walk to the end of the Champ de Mars on the southeast, dominated by the Ecole Militaire military school. Ordered by King Louis XV as France suffered from a lack of military officers, Ecole Militaire was supposed to be more massive and beautiful than Les Invalides (see below). Construction began, but poor finances saw the size and grandeur of the project severely reduced and, after completion in 1780 and 7 years as a royal military school, the site was abandoned. Used as warehouse later on, it is only in 1878 that Ecole Militaire would be used again for its original purpose, still the case today. It cannot be visited.

Parisianist Fun Fact: Napoleon, a genius in the art of war, was a student at Ecole Militaire from 1784 to 1785.


Turn left on Place Joffre, in front of Ecole Militaire, and at the big intersection 150m ahead, take Avenue de Tourville, which will lead you to Les Invalides and its southern entrance. Built in 1670 by King Louis XIV to welcome his war veterans, Les Invalides was later saved by Napoleon from desolation and destruction. Les Invalides now houses the Musée des Armées and Napoleon Tomb, buried under the massive golden dome of Les Invalides’ unique cathedral, but also a hospital and facilities for war veterans. The entrance ticket (9,5€ / 10AM-5PM daily) is valid for both the museum and the tomb. The tomb is really worth seeing, while the museum is not essential, although extremely interesting as it contains knights armors from the Middle Age and items of modern warfare). Walking through Les Invalides and its courtyard is free.

Parisianist Fun Fact: Napoleon is not buried inside just 1 quartzite coffin, but there are 6 different coffins between his body and the massive red sarcophagus you can see.

Rodin Museum

Exit the area from the northern exit, on Place des Invalides, with a beautiful view on the green fields that lay between the Invalides and the river. Turn right, alongside the building, and turn right again on Boulevard des Invalides. Take the first street on your left, where you will find the entrance to the Musée Rodin (79 rue de Varenne, 9€ /10AM-5:45PM, closed on Monday). The museum, which houses many of the French sculptor’s famous works, is worth the visit, but its gardens cannot be missed (1€ entrance fee). Masterpieces such as The Thinker are presented in the beautiful French garden, with a great view on the golden dome of the Invalides.

Parisianist Fun Fact: Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) is considered as the father of modern sculpture, but as a student, he was never accepted in Paris’ prestigious school of art, even after 3 applications.

Sainte Clothilde

Turn right when exiting the Musée Rodin, and quickly turn left on Rue de Bourgogne. Turn right at the second intersection (Rue Las Cases) and 70m ahead is Sainte Clothilde Church. This church might not be as old as the others (it was only built in 1857) but both its interior and exterior are beautiful. A visit inside Sainte Clothilde church is definitely recommended to admire the architecture, the décor and the stained glass windows in a more intimate way.

Palais Bourbon

When exiting Sainte Clothilde church, walk past the park and turn left on Rue Saint Dominique. Turn right on Rue de Bourgogne where you will see the backside of the Palais Bourbon ahead. Walk around the building to the right (Rue Aristide Briand), and then towards the bridge over the Seine river. Turn back to have a good overall view on Palais Bourbon, home of the National Assembly today (can only be visited via reservations by telephone @ +33/ (0)1 40 63 56 00. Audio-guides in English, bring ID). Built in 1728, it was originally a palace where many distant members of the royal family once lived. In 1827, the State became the owner of the Palais Bourbon and transformed it into the place where today’s deputies still vote the laws regulating life in France.

Parisianist Fun Fact: The Palais Bourbon possesses an old library, painted by French painting master Eugène Delacroix, which houses many old documents, including the minutes of Joan of Arc’s trial in 1431.

Place de la Concorde

Cross the Pont de la Concorde bridge and you will arrive on Paris’ biggest square: Place de la Concorde. In the 18th century it was decided to use this land, between the Champs-Elysées and the Tuileries Gardens, and build on it what would become the Place Louis XV, with a large statue of the mounted king in its center. Since 1763, the square has seen numerous glories and tragedies. During the French Revolution in the 1790’s, the king’s statue was destroyed, and the blood soaked square welcomed the terrifying guillotine. King Louis XVI and his wife Marie-Antoinette were executed on what was called the Place de la Révolution. Only in 1830 did it permanently become known as the Place de la Concorde. The Egyptian Obelisk, the oldest monument in Paris, at the center of the square was a gift from the king of Egypt in 1831 to France . The golden tip was added in 1998.

Parisianist Fun Fact: In 1993, the Act Up Paris association covered the “Obélisque” with a giant condom as a symbol against AIDS.
