The Field of Mars in Paris takes its name from the one in Rome where Roman armies would frequently muster for war. The French Champs de Mars was used for much the same purpose. It is most famous these days for the presence of the Eiffel Tower, France's most famous tourist attraction. The Tower was actually built for the International Exposition of 1889, however, was the Champs de Mars was the site for many similar expositions, in 1867, 1878, 1900 and 1937.Recommended for:

When the weather is sunny, there’s nothing better than relaxing in a beautiful garden in Paris. There aren’t many public gardens, which is why it’s special to stay near one during your Paris vacation. One of the many reasons we love the 7th arrondissement in Paris is its close proximity to the beautiful Champ de Mars gardens. Bring a picnic, stretch out on the grass for a nap, play Frisbee or play basketball in the basketball court. If you have children, let them play in one of the four playgrounds that are clustered around the gardens and relax on the green benches nearby. With the beautiful Eiffel Tower in the background, it’s a memorable experience!

Parc du Champ de Mars has got to be one of the city’s most spectacular locations to have a picnic. There’s a huge lawn that rests all winter and is opened to the public in the summer, you can find your baguette, Camembert and bottle of Bordeaux close by …and oh right, the magnificent Eiffel Tower is right there in front of you! Another good point: It doesn't close at dusk like many of the other parks in Paris.Recommended for:

Paris is just so incredible the size and scale and beauty! Everything here feels so grand! With huge parks and squares like this one and yet they still seem to maintain the feeling of intamacy in all the grandness.Recommended for:

If you are by the Eiffel Tower, this Parc is unavoidable. Parc du Champs de Mars is the big stretch of grass in between the Eiffel Tower and École Militaire. In the summer you can catch hundreds of Parisians lounging on the lawn, but in the winter many of the grassy sections are sectioned off with signs saying "Pelouse au repose" (Resting Lawn). So if you are fortunate enough to have nice weather during your stay, do as the Parisians do, grab a baguette or a bottle of wine and head to Champs de Mars to hang out!

This is a large public greenspace in Paris, France, located in the seventh arrondissement, between the Eiffel Tower to the northwest and the École Militaire to the southeast. We were her for several festivals and also for the fireworks on Bastille Day. Great area for taking pictures of the Eiffel Tower.

This is where you want to sit in a park and watch the Eiffel Tower from a relaxing place. You'll see people having lunch, drinking, and lounging. Of course, being in a park with a bunch tourists brings a bunch of hawkers trying to sell you stuff. But it's pretty easy to ignore them as they aren't hyper aggressive.

It is a popular place to sit at night. The Eiffel Tower looming above is beautiful at night, twinkling on the hour. The park closes at midnight when the lifts up the Eiffel Tower stops running. It is a nice park, but not my favorite in Paris.

This park is wide and long, leading up to the Eiffel Tower.
It gives people a great place to view the Eiffel Tower at night and take some fabulous photos!
Be careful of peddlers who are trying to sell you trinkets of the Eiffel Tower. They can be pretty persistent.
Otherwise, this park is nice to stroll in or to take a run.

Named after the Roman God of War, this appellation relates to the original vocation of the area as an exercise ground for the military cadets of the École militaire. Created in 1780, it is a major venue for national events. This park extends from the École militaire to the Eiffel Tower and is accessible day and night as it is not enclosed. It offers a wonderful view of the capital’s most famous monument; whatever the weather, people come to picnic, play music, meet up, and at nightfall ... to watch the tower sparkle with lights.
