Avenue de Breteuil is a large avenue within a big park just in view of Les Invalides (the place where Napoleon is buried). People sit on benches, lounging and having picnics, go roller-blading, running, or cycling. The place is safe, calm, and very classy in its Haussmann building style. 

Located between Avenue de Breteuil and Avenue de Saxe in the chic 7th district, the Marché Saxe-Breteuil is a must for every person who visits Paris. Saxe-Breteuil has an unrivalled setting facing the Eiffel Tower, as well as the city's most chic produce. Look for farmer's goat's cheese, rare apple varieties, Armenian specialities, abundant oysters and a handful of dedicated small producers.

This market sets up every Thursday and Saturday morning along Avenue de Saxe, a beautiful street lined with sycamore trees and elegant Parisian buildings. This street sits along the same axis as the Champ de Mars that stretches from the Eiffel Tower to the Ecole Militaire. That’s how you get those picture perfect views of the Eiffel Tower.
