Top 20 Eiffel Tower, Paris vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
The Eiffel Tower was built for the Universal Exhibition of 1889 and has since become the symbol of the city and one of the world's most recognisable landmarks. It sits on the edge of the 7th arrondissement, a relaxed part of town, home to world-class museums like the Musée d'Orsay (Impressionist paintings galore) or Musée Rodin (home to the famous 'Thinker' sculpture), state buildings like the National Assembly, Les Invalides with its famous golden dome, as well as a heap of embassies. There are lots of cafes and restaurants to choose from, as well as picturesque streets like Rue Cler and Rue Saint Dominique which are worth checking out. Groups of friends and young couples often enjoy picnics on the grass of the Champs de Mars at sundown, a perfect location right in front of the royal military academy and with an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower.
