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.

For people who like the parisian architecture, it's a nice walk. But nothing really surprising. Maybe if you've already walked around the city a little bit, you can give the preference for some other place. The channel of Saint-Martan is a good one, with a nice view as well.

The Rue de l'Universite is a nice residential street in the 7th arrondissement. There is not too much on the street that could be considered a major tourtist attraction, but it is a nice street to walk on.
