Today, we reached the French capital early in the morning, searching for Summer in Paris. At the Eiffel Tower, we experienced the first signs of summertime. Here is a collection of photos taken from the Champ-de-Mars in the 7th arrondissement.

Summer. After the tender green of the trees’ first leaves and the trees in springtime blossom comes a fun season with long days and generous sunlight. Parisians and visitors worldwide do not hesitate to come here early to enjoy a great view of the Eiffel Tower and have picnics on the park lawn.

Summer in Paris: at the Eiffel Tower

As for now, this post gives a selection of some of our best shots taken a few days ago in the Champ-de-Mars with the soaring Eiffel Tower in the background… We started our walk at the École Militaire and walked through the entire length of the Champ-de-Mars before crossing avenue Gustave Eiffel to reach allée Jean Paulhan. We then left the Champ-de-Mars by walking on rue de l’Université to shoot a picturesque view of the Eiffel Tower soaring high above the roofs.

The Champ-de-Mars in summer

The park of the Champ-de-Mars covers an area of 24 hectares (60 acres) between the Eiffel Tower and the Ecole Militaire. Opened to the public as early as 1780, it was used as a former parade ground, a rallying point for demonstrations at the French Revolution, and a racecourse. The Champ-de-Mars hosted the 1889 Universal Exhibition before becoming a landscaped garden in 1908.

Rue de l’Université in summer

The end of the Rue de l’University (7th arrondissement) is one of our favourite spots for photographing the Eiffel Tower. The look at the monument rising high above the elegant Belle Époque buildings and trees is absolutely delightful. Another favourite photo spot nearby is the Square Rapp.
