The Eiffel Tower is situated in the Parc du Champs de Mars, in the district of Paris known as the 7th arrondissement. The area is characterised by its abundance of important government buildings and historical landmarks, of which the Eiffel Tower is only one – the Musée D’Orsay and the Hôtel des Invalides also lie in the 7th arrondissement. The location has an aristocratic feel and is within close proximity of other places of interest including the Champs-Élysées and the Arc de Triomphe. The Parc du Champs de Mars itself is a large space of greenery open to the public that sprawls around the Tower, making it a pleasant area to walk around and admire the monument from on fine days.
