We'll start our tour of Paris at Pont Alexandre III -- the most beautiful bridge we've ever seen. Pont Alexandre crosses the Seine River near Invalides, the site of Napoleon's Tomb. Across the river from Invalides, a short walk down Ave. Winston Churchill will take you to the Champs-Elysees, or walking to your right down the river will take you past Place de la Concorde, to the Tuilieres Gardens and the Louvre.
This walk through the Tuileres Gardens is one of the most beautiful walks imaginable, as you can see below...it's as if the entire city is an art museum. However, beware of pickpockets. Hotels nearby include Hotel De Crillon, Sofitel Le Faubourg Paris, Exclusive Hotel Mayfair, Castille Paris, The Westin Paris, and the Jolly Hotel Lotti.
It's about a 10 minute walk from Invalides through Parc Champ de Mars to the Eiffel Tower. This view of the approach gives you a better feel for it's size. Hotels near the Eiffel Tower include the Novotel Paris Tour Eiffel, and the Mercure Par Suffren Eiffel 4.
Crossing the river again at Pont D'lena, here's a look at the Eiffel Tower as seen from the steps of the Palais du Chaillot, looking out across the Trocadero Gardens.
Returning to our starting point at Pont Alexandre, if we walk straight, we quickly find ourselves at the Champs-Elysees, and a left turn takes us towards the Arc De Triomphe. Hotels in this area include Marriott Paris Champs Elysees, Hilton Paris Arc De Triomphe, Exclusive Le A Champs Elysees, and Le 123 Elysees.
For the moment, though, our tour will take a right turn so you can enjoy the view of this fountain and sculptures from Jardin du Tulieries. The Louvre is to the right.
Here's the courtyard of the Louvre. Hotels near the Louvre include Hotel Du Louvre and the Novotel Paris Les Halles.
Continuing down the Seine past the Louvre, we'll reach Notre Dame Cathedral, shown below. There are a number of hotels across the river, on the left bank (rive gauche) near St. Germain, the Latin Quarter, and the Jardins du Luxembourg. These include Best Western La Tour Notre-Dame, Best Western Le Jardin De Cluny, Exclusive Hotel Dacia Luxembourg, Exclusive Central St. Germain, K and K Hotel Cayre, and the Abbatail St Germain Hotel.
