Discover Paris on foot: Eiffel Tower side

Discover Paris on foot: Eiffel Tower side

Paris can't be visited in a day! However, a selection of must-see monuments can be seen on a simple stroll around the capital.

To begin your visit to Paris, you first need to find your way around by arrondissement, or even by district. Paris covers an area of almost 105 km2, so you'll need to target monuments by geographical zone.

In this article, we take you to the Eiffel Tower to discover its surroundings and, above all, enjoy its most beautiful views.

This walk around the Eiffel Tower will take about 1 hour, unless of course you take the time to stop and enjoy the moment and take some memorable photos!

As you leave Alma Marceau station on line 9 of the Paris metro, you will see the Flame of Liberty overlooking the Pont de l'Alma.

In this direction, you can already make out the Iron Lady, enthroned on the water's edge between its bridges and boats. Walk in its direction along the Seine to the Debilly footbridge, which is a must for a spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower. 


Of course, your route will take you to the foot of the latter, but before you get there you'll pass along the rue de l'Université, which offers one of the most popular shots on social networks.

After admiring the grandeur and charm of this French icon, the Eiffel Tower, you'll continue on to the Bir-Hakeim Bridge. A must for typical Parisian souvenir photos. 


The walk ends at Place du Trocadéro, which also offers an emblematic view of this fabulous monument, which you will have discovered from its most beautiful angles!
