The 7th arrondissement in the west of Paris on the left bank is known above all for the imposing Champ de Mars where the most famous and most visited monument in Paris is located, namely the famous Eiffel Tower. Due to the presence of the Iron Lady, this district is therefore particularly touristy but it also has other remarkable sites: the elegant Faubourg Saint-Germain and its superb 18th century buildings; the Hotel National des Invalides being a military monument and an army museum at the same time; the Musée d'Orsay and its impressive collection of artworks; the sublime Pont Alexandre III, one of the most beautiful bridges in Paris, known for its beautiful gilded bronze sculptures; Le Bon Marché, a mythical department store on the left bank. But the 7th arrondissement is also home to many boutiques, 4 and 5 star hotels and many gourmet restaurants. There is no doubt that the 7th arrondissement of Paris has much to offer to visitors.

When to go to Paris?

It goes without saying that Paris lives all year round, but if you are targeting a particular activity or event, you will have to choose your period. Here are some tips on when to visit Paris.

High tourist season: from May to September, tourists flock in great numbers. It is during this period that the climate is the mildest and many festivals and events take place, such as Roland Garros or the Fête de la Musique. Note that in August, Parisians leave the city for a holiday, which gives a strange atmosphere. Many shops are closed and only the tourist centres are lively. The Christmas holiday season is also very popular, especially for the illuminations and animated shop windows of department stores.

Medium tourist season: in October-November and from March to April, tourism slows down slightly, but not the influx. Indeed, Paris is a dense city and there are almost always people in the transport sector and in the centres of attraction

Low tourist season: there are not really any, except in January and February, months in which hotel rates fall slightly. Paris attracts tourists all the time!
