I walked along the Rue de l’Universite today on my way from the Eiffel Tower to the Musee de l’Armee and found the Rue to be unassuming, with nothing to really see. I wouldn’t count it as a tourist attraction or anything to go and...More

Some embassies, lots of classy apartment buildings, dignified and pleasant, but not especially interesting. No shopping or food.

A road trough a residential area in Paris. Nice place to walk around and explore Parsian Buidings. From the 4 way intersection you can have a nice view of Pont Alexandre III, Grand Palais and Petit Palais.

Just an average road, although at the end you can get nice pictures of the Eiffel tower. There's also a museum in the middle.

You can walk from Rue du Bac to the Eiffel Tower via this residential street, and pass through some nice building. The street is rather quiet. There are a few restaurants between avenue de Latour-Maubourg and rue Jean Nicot. However, if you can a more...More

The Rue de l'Universite is a nice residential street in the 7th arrondissement. There is not too much on the street that could be considered a major tourtist attraction, but it is a nice street to walk on.

Tour Eiffel / Invalides
With the Eiffel Tower at its core, the Invalides area
of Paris is guaranteed to impress. Golden towers and
Baron Haussmann's urban vision meet military
precision, stretching avenues, and luscious lawns. The
area boasts the Musée D’Orsay, the tomb of Napoleon,
the National Parliament and UNESCO, as well as
luxurious, exclusive residences. In fine restaurants
