Things to Do Near the Eiffel Tower

Things to Do Near the Eiffel Tower

After your visit to the Eiffel Tower, stay in Paris' 7th Arrondissement to take advantage of nearby landmarks and sightseeing areas. Here are your options as you venture toward the city center or cross the River Seine with the tower in sight.

Stroll across the Seine to explore the Trocadéro Gardens.

One of the best vantage points of the Eiffel Tower can be found from the Trocadéro Gardens (Jardins du Trocadéro), a public park directly on the other side of the Seine. Simply walk across the Pont d'Iéna, and enjoy photo ops of the tower, perhaps with the gardens' fountains in the foreground. A stop at Trocadéro is part of a number of Paris sightseeing tours.

Hop on a riverboat for a cruise along the Seine.

Relax your legs before or after climbing the Eiffel Tower with a leisurely boat ride on the Seine. You can admire Paris' other waterfront landmarks, such as the Notre-Dame Cathedral or the Louvre, at nearly any time of day, as morning, lunch, dinner, and night cruises are available. Tour boats depart at various locations along the Seine, one of which is located at the Eiffel Tower.

Learn about France's military history at Les Invalides.

Just east of the Eiffel Tower sits Les Invalides, a collection of museums and other attractions that relate to the military history of France, most notably the tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte. From Champ de Mars, walk along Rue de Grenelle or Avenue de Tourville to reach Les Invalides for an independent visit (you can't miss the large gold dome), or opt for a bike tour or night tour that includes the site.

Immerse yourself in art at Musée Rodin.

For a look at the sculptures of French artist Auguste Rodin, check out his eponymous museum, located in an 18th-century mansion just on the other side of Les Invalides from the Eiffel Tower. In addition to Rodin's famous pieces such as The Thinker, the museum is home to paintings by the likes of Monet, Renoir, and Van Gogh. Visit with a Paris sightseeing pass, or opt for a private tour.
