What to expect

Enjoy this tour, created for visitors who want to have a general view of Paris and especially of the Eiffel Tower area, discovering some of the most important monuments in the history of the French Capital. As we are convinced that walking is the better way to go around and take time to see better, this is what we will do for half a day!

Starting from Alexander III Bridge around the historic 7th arrondissement, Paris' noblest district. We will pass through Les Invalides which enclosed Napoleon's tomb to reach the Musée Rodin’s Gardens.

The Musée Rodin contains most of Rodin's significant creations, including The Thinker, The Kiss and The Gates of Hell. Many of his sculptures are displayed in the museum's extensive garden.

After all the necessary explanations and the answer to questions visitors may ask, our walk continues to the École Militaire of Paris, founded in 1750 as a college for developing military officers. Napoleon Bonaparte graduated from this school in 1785, after only one year of schooling, rather than the standard two years.

The École Militaire complex also hosts France's École de Guerre, a Military Staff College, for higher education of military officer.

The Champs of Mars will appear in front of us after the stop at the Ecole Militaire. You will be able to enjoy the view of this large public greenspace, located in the seventh arrondissement, between the Eiffel Tower to the northwest and the École Militaire to the southeast. The park is named after the Campus Martius ("Mars Field") in Rome, a tribute to the Latin name of the Roman God of war. The name also alludes to the fact that the lawns here were formerly used as drilling and marching grounds by the French military.

Visitors will have time to enjoy a fantastic view on the Eiffel Tower, which remains the city’s most iconic structure, one of the most visited in the world (with 7 million visitors per year).

Our half day tour will end on the opposite bank of the Seine at Jardins du Trocadéro (Gardens of the Trocadero), which were created for the Universal Exposition in 1937. This green space of nearly 10,000 m² offers a stunning view of the Eiffel Tower dominating the capital. The centrepiece of the gardens is the famous Warsaw fountains which, with its 20 water cannons, offers a remarkable water display, especially on summer evenings when the illuminations around the fountains add to the attraction. There are a number of sculptures to be admired, including gilded bronze animal statues, and the two stone statues, 'L'homme' by Pierre Traverse and 'La Femme' by Daniel Bacqué.
