7th arrondissement: Iconic Paris

Don't even think about skipping the 7th arrondissement. Home to the iron-wrought outline of the Eiffel Tower and the bustling walkways where book sellers and artists meet on the Seine, the acclaimed Musee d'Orsay and the rich collections of Rodin, it's like an encyclopedia of must-see sights and cultural institutions. A base in the area will help you digest it all with ease. 7th arrondissement vacation rentals range from beautiful Bourgeois penthouses to compact lofts with romantic views over the Champ de Mars.

Things to do

Beneath the Eiffel Tower in the 7th arrondissement

Where to begin? The 7th is home to some of the most iconic monuments and museums in Paris. And 2 really stand out from the crowd: The Eiffel Tower and the Musee d'Orsay. The first can be climbed for dramatic panoramas of the capital and a glimpse at the historic building projects that made this metropolis such a center of art and architecture. The latter is home to masterworks by Monet, Cezanne, van Gogh, Gauguin – the list goes on.

Activities

Surrounded by must-sees in the 7th arrondissement

Hop-on, hop-off tours, guided walks, Segway jaunts through the Champ de Mars – all these are great ways to start getting through the seemingly endless array of sights and attractions that lurks between the blocks of the 7th arrondissement. Of course, you don't have to go out and organize things with guides and the like. You could just settle on the green spaces with a picnic, sip a coffee in the cafes, glug fine French wine and gawp up for hours at the Eiffel Tower – some 7th arrondissement vacation rentals even have views of the icon.

Weather

Something for all seasons in the 7th arrondissement

It should hardly come as a surprise that the 7th arrondissement is always in demand from travelers eager to check off Paris's greatest sights and monuments. The summer remains the most popular season of all to seek out 7th arrondissement vacation rentals, with oodles of people coming to scale the Eiffel Tower in June, July and August. Spring and autumn months like April and October offer reduced rates in many places, while winter – in December and January – has festive markets smelling of mulled wine on the Champ de Mars.

Natural features

Urban nature in the 7th arrondissement

Apart from the wiggling meanders of the River Seine, there's really nothing left of wild France in the 7th arrondissement. But even in one of the most built-up areas of the capital, it's still possible to find somewhere to relax and sample nature. The wide Champ de Mars is great for that in the summer. It's lawns and flower beds become popular with picnickers and walkers. The banks of the river also offer some peace and quiet, where leafy paths are peppered with pigeons and book sellers and cafes.
