Some embassies, lots of classy apartment buildings, dignified and pleasant, but not especially interesting. No shopping or food.

A road trough a residential area in Paris. Nice place to walk around and explore Parsian Buidings. From the 4 way intersection you can have a nice view of Pont Alexandre III, Grand Palais and Petit Palais.

Just an average road, although at the end you can get nice pictures of the Eiffel tower. There's also a museum in the middle.

Tour Eiffel / Invalides
With the Eiffel Tower at its core, the Invalides area
of Paris is guaranteed to impress. Golden towers and
Baron Haussmann's urban vision meet military
precision, stretching avenues, and luscious lawns. The
area boasts the Musée D’Orsay, the tomb of Napoleon,
the National Parliament and UNESCO, as well as
luxurious, exclusive residences. In fine restaurants
