We can then talk about the 7éme arrondissement de Paris, for all thats whre the tour Eiffel is…and more…Some of my favorites places/hangouts over the years there are Bistro de Paris 33, rue de Lille,http://www.cityvox.co.uk/restaurant_paris/le-bistrot-de-paris_680/profile-place . Café de Mars 11, rue Augereau,http://www.cafedemars.com/ .

For seeing other than the Tour Eiffel,not on my top list, sorry…however, there is the whole Invalides complex especially the Musée de l’Armée at http://www.invalides.org/, see also in the complex the musée des plans-reliefs with a maquete or small scale repro of the city of Paris,and other fortified cities in France. The wonderful Musée d’Orsay, impressionists at its best, http://www.musee-orsay.fr/

Plenty of activities at Versailles, where the faboluous Royal Fireworks are forthcoming in June and early July, see it in English http://www.chateauversaillesspectacles.fr/?&lang=eng
