Parisian Mood Walking Tour (Self Guided), Paris

See the Paris that everybody dreams of when you visit the 7th arrondissment. In the shadow of the city's iconic Eiffel Tower are wonderful shops and plenty of cafés with outdoor terraces. Experience all this in the neighborhood around the Champs de Mars Gardens. This is the vast green space between the tower and the École Militaire complex of buildings.

Tucked away around the corner from the Eiffel Tower is one of the best shopping streets in Paris, the Rue du Commerce. This is where many Parisians love to shop, a one-way street with large sidewalks that has a village-like feel to it. Here, you will find fashion boutiques, high-end designer stores, shoe shops, fashion stores for men and women, cafés, patisseries and a chocolatier.

One of the most wonderful experiences here is to take a walk down the Avenue de la Motte-Piquet. Many locals consider it to be one of the best café streets in Paris. Soak up the delicious aromas of freshly roasted coffees and enjoy a cup with a pain au chocolat or croissant in a bistro or café that catches your eye. Look over the rim of your coffee cup and watch scenes of Parisian life unfold in front of you. In addition to fueling up in a café, stock up on delicious foods and enjoy a picnic in the neighborhood's parkland.
